Split screen masking border (uneven)

Split screen masking has a problem with the border being uneven across it's length. Only the first cut has an uneven border width. All others, if activated, are good.

  • @NormanPCN Just checked and this doesn't happen for me everything is ok.

  • @NormanPCN - I don't see this either, is there a step missing or adjustment made that you might have forgotten?

  • NormanPCN Just tried this myself but all is ok for me, damn it if you have too tilt your screen a tad ;)  

  • Hmm, okay it is not systemic. Maybe it is an AMD driver thing, or a Norman installation/uninitialized thing. All I have to do is adjust the border width to something thick enough to notice the uneven width. Any and all presets will show the uneven width of the first cut.

    Windows 7, i7 4770k 4Ghz, 16GB, AMD 7950 GPU, 3GB, driver 15.7

    I just did the following steps

    1. Open Hitfilm
    2. New, Start compositing (project is 8-bit, 1920x1080p29.97)
    3. New plane (select grey color)
    4. Add split screen masking effect to plane
    5. Make border wider.

    Here is the resulting screen shot. There could be a clue in this screen shot. The upper right is a square end point and the lower left looks to be rounded.

    Do you have another machine you can test this on ?

    As a point of clarification the driver version I listed was the Catalyst version number. Not one of the various technical version numbers.

    I noticed that the new Crimson drivers are finally out. Version 15.11. Sadly no change on my machine/installation.

    FWIW, I do remember seeing this in HF3 as well. I don't think I ever reported it.

  • @NormanPCN Actually you did mention it before


    My AMD driver is also the Crimson driver and the 15.30 came from the download version number. I was lazy and didn't dig deeper than that.

    Cool. A blast from the past. Seeing that thread does explain why I ever ending up looking at SSM in the first place. Trying out the BCC Text in HF4, which can also have 10+ points, reminded me of when I briefly fiddled with SSM.

    SSM does not seem to like my installation.
