    Any tricks to setting up Media Composer 2018.4 with an UHD Monitor?

    Hi folks - been thinking about upgrading my monitor from two old 22" displays to a single 32" 4K display and I wondered if there were any tricks to configuring MC in this case. I'm running the latest Windows 10 (not beta). Do we still need to configure compatibility of MC? Do you set the font scaling to 150%, etc. - I would like to have some idea and for some odd reason I've not been able to find much through a Google search (just loads of complaints from a time when MC really didn't support high DPI displays).

    Thanks in advance

    Thanks C. I guess with a 42" monitor you don't have to worry about fonts being too small - lol.

    Only problems. Avid does not properly support the 4k monitor in Windows 10.

    Re: Any tricks to setting up Media Composer 2018.4 with an UHD Monitor?

    I have 32” Eizo CG-318K.

    At the moment I resized Windows to 135% but it is not solution.

    Boris pugins - BCC and Saphire completely resize bad and everything is too small.

    But don’t worry Avid correct it in 2030, after landing on the Mars.

    i exactly know that problem lie not only in Avid but in Windows, also.

    Re: Any tricks to setting up Media Composer 2018.4 with an UHD Monitor?

    Are you running the latest Media Composer? 2018.4?

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I would very much like to hear from Avid on this because any threads I could find suggested that MC was now compatible with High DPI monitors...

    Cheers

    Of course, I have Windows 10 after Spring update, MC 2018.4 and newest Boris plugins.

    Generaly problem monitor 4K is not solved by Windows and by Avid and Boris.

    I was told that you have to set the Windows scaling to 200% - have you tried that?

    Thanks again for the feedback -

    Re: Any tricks to setting up Media Composer 2018.4 with an UHD Monitor?

    I bought super monitor 4K because I would like to have super quality. Resizing is half measures because fonts are blurred.

    Base question is what we want - big monitor or big monitor 4K. Cheaper is to buy monitor 32” but 2560x1440 and everything will be OK.

    i read suggestion that good solution is monitor 42”. Better is maybe 65”.
