MINIPOV 4 Horizontal Limit

by TWDindustries on Thu Aug 18, 2016 12:44 pm

Good Afternoon all (Good Morning to those West of me).

I've been uploading my first images to the MINIPOV 4 without a hitch, starting with a series of pixelated flags (slight downrez of a series of 10x15 pixel flags found online). As I hit the wall of the 127 pixel sample image, it got me wondering: How long of an image can you load into the MINIPOV before it gets mad at you?

Well, I scanned through the image converter code, and I don't see where they're using a byte for the image height, but it must be in there somewhere. That would explain the limit of 127.

I apologize. By "hit the wall of the 127 pixel sample image" I meant in Photoshop. I hadn't attempted to extend the file past 127 and see if it'll convert. I'll experiment and report back.
