Help with the picture size
I finished my poster and saved it. It's size is 1920x1080. But when I opened the saved picture on my computer the picture multiplied around the edges. Idk how to say it but I posted the picture you can see it in my artwork, a medic is on it. If anyone knows how to change it to be a normal one picture while still in sfm please help ( I know I can crop it but it looks worse after cropping).

Idk. I installed it 2 days ago and I made maybe 4 normal posters. While I was making those posters SFM would shut down randomly but I was saving everything I made so I didn't have to start all over. But then after I made my 5th poster and exported it into a poster and when I opened it to see the picture it was multiplied around the edges. I didnt mess with the setting or anything I only turn off motion blur. I dont think the monitor resolution has anything to do with this because the first 4 were normal. Could It be something wrong in the SFM, something I could of changed by mistake? Would downloading the quicktime help me or something because I saw it helps people with their animations, they also got pultiplied around the edges. I hope someone knows how to change this to be normal I really love making these posters :/

Hmm I think the problem was that I was working like 4 hours max on sfm in one day without turning my computer off and it just overdrived or something like that. Now after I turned my computer off for 8 hours and went to sfm again I just put a model in the map and saved it and it waas exported normally. So yea I think it was because SFM was working to hard and to long. But still if anyone knows how to fix this or maybe make SFM 'survive' working longer pls tell.

hmm... I've had SFM running literally for days without shutting it down and never had that happen, so i doubt that could be an issue. but if it works now....

I was wrong it's multiplying around the edges again ;-; I really hate this ,does anyone know what to do. Also if the only solution is to crop, does anyone know a free program that I could install that crops nicely and doesnt change the resolution of the picture(I mean that after the croping it still looks as good as it did in the begining). If yes please tell me it would help :)

Do you have any launch options? What are your poster export options? Have you tried exporting as an image sequence?
Birdy May 12, 2014 @ 5:02am 
Launch options? Where can I see that? My poster exports, um format: JPEG; Image size 1920x1080 in pixels and I checked the box with constrain proportions and thats all. I don't understand how to export it as an image. Can you explain in steps like what should I do when trying to save it as an image pls.
