Tarp Image

Postby scvkurt03 » Sat Sep 06, 2014 2:35 pm

We're using a large circular tarp in our field show this year and I'm wondering how to center a square image on a round tarp. Is it a simple matter of sizing?

Trying to get this image:

Centered on this tarp:

Without this happening:

Use a Circle Prop and then use the image below.

Looks great on the grid, not great in real view:

Something I'm doing wrong?

Use the Flat panel Prop with that image.

Thanks! Worked out using a square flat panel. In the future, I'll need to mask square images into pretty much whatever shape I want using Photoshop or Gimp or something, then use a flat square surface to make it work in Real View?

Currently the circle prop is not texturing the way I think it should so it is on the list to be changed.

Solid color circles should work properly. Custom textured circles would be best done in photoshop.

Hello! Reviving an old thread, related issue.

I'm trying to get a flat circle centered on the 50. I can put it centered in the chart, but it doesn't appear centered in RealView. Any tips?
