    MAINSTAGE Grid Resolution
    Hi Rounik, everyone, I have a 13'MacBook version 10.5.6, and I was wondering what GRID RESOLUTION works best with Mainstage using this computer? Thanks. Jodie

    Hi Jodie, Mainstage suggests 85x64 (good for 12" - 15"). Is that not good for you? Rounik

    Heh Rounik. What's up? Yeah, that's what I thought I should be using, but when I open a new concert in Mainstage, it defaults at 160 X 100 (good for 21 - 24" widescreen). I should be using 85 X 64, eh? Thanks man. Jodie

    Heh man. Another question here about grid resolution: What will happen if I build my setup on LAYOUT mode at the highest resolution? Will it now show up on my 13' Mac sometimes? Jodie

    Hey Jodie, You can start building a new Mainstage template or project at whatever grid resolution you wish. It will change the size of how things look for you. So it depends how good your eyesight is ;-) Try it out and find the setting that suits you. If you are building it on a 13" screen and intend to view it on a 13" screen there should be no problem. Cheers Rounik

    Heh Rounik, OK, I think I got what ya mean. So basically it doesn't really what resolution I use as long as I am using it ONLY with my 13' Mac? Is that right? In that case, I should choose the BIGGEST/WIDEST SCREEN SIZE which would be 160 X 100, right? Thanks man. Jodie

    Hey Jodie, A larger grid resolution on a small screen = objects look smaller, but you can fit more on to the screen. Try it out. Open an existing template and resize the grid resolution... you'll "see" what I mean ;-) Rounik
