Just trying to set up OpenLP for the first time and seeing how closely I can make things look like our present arrangements.
Have yet to hook up to our Epson EB 1940W Projector which is WXGA.
We project to a 4:3 screen. Using VGA at either end and a VGA/ethernet adapters and ethernet cable to cover most of the distance. We have to set up fresh each week.
I have looked at this Manual page http://manual.openlp.org/dualmonitors.html
to help me figure out how to configure things propoerly.
Our Laptop uses a recommended 1366 x 768 setting in case that is picked up OpenLP or for that matter the projector.
Can anyone point me to answers or outline in detail the steps to achieve the following;-
1 Work out which settings will give the best "full screen" picture via the projector. These would be settings on laptop, in OpenLP and on Projector - though at present we try to avoid doing anything like that on projector end.
2 How to set up themes to work full screen - at present I have black bars
3 How to get DVD (and maybe the same applies to video files) clips to appear full screen, even on my laptop there are thick bars all around
4 How to import our present "backgrounds" all picture files and add them to themes in bulk if possible - can folder structure be retained for the different types of "backgrounds"
5 Taking things back a step. I'd like to be able to give out instructions for ideal settings for people submitting images, Powerpoints, Impress and so on to make the best - we currently have our Songs displayed in Full screen but some of the powerpoints supplied to me are full screen and some have wide bars at the sides.
There's probably more or different questions I should ask but I think I should stop there - pretty sure someone has been down this path before and there's a whole guide out there I've missed
