Pixel Maps

Pixel maps apply a pixellated effect to content that is mapped to your screens. This can be helpful to simulate the lower resolution effect result of using LED screens.

Pixel maps can be set in the pixel maps tab in the scene config workspace.

You can:

  • upload or select the pixel map to apply
  • set whether the pixel should be transparent or opaque
  • set the pixel count in rows and columns based on the pixel density of your screen
