Panel

Recommended Posts

I'm a bit stalled on my 170 project. Without a decent panel I am unable to do a VC. I've tinkered a bit with an old 190 panel and got something flyable, but not great. Any takers or contacts would be greatly appreciated.

Any takers or>contacts would be greatly appreciated.Find a photo of the entire panel and then develop a full bitmap based on the photo. Work with a LARGE pallete area. This is a compressed .jpg of a 18MB .psd (Photoshop) file for a project I'm working on. Every gauge was created on a separate layer and placed in position directly over the original photo, and scaled to size and position.By working this way, I have (a) a full image for the "exterior" model, (:( the bitmaps for the gauges already to build, © the bitmaps for the VC panel, and (d) after appropriate cropping, the bitmap for the 2d panel!There's a seamless transition between the VC and 2d panels because they're identical! :)BillAVSIM OmbudsmanFounder and Director,Creative Recycling of Aircraft Partshttp://catholic-hymns.com/frbill/FS2002/images/fartslogo.jpghttp://forums.avsim.com/user_files/19395.jpg

Very nice! You do great work. The biggest problem I am having is the first item. The large bmp of a 170 panel. None in my area, but Brian Gladden's seen one in his area and will attempt to get me one.

Hi,I wonder if anyone has a good advice on "stretching" an image right where the perspective is a bit wrong.BrgdsEugen

>Hi,>>I wonder if anyone has a good advice on "stretching" an image>right where the perspective is a bit wrong.I assume that you're talking about one that is 'skewed' into a trapezoidal shape, and not rectangular.Most paint programs have the ability to 'rotate' an image, but only a few have the ability to do parametric reforming. Serif's newest PhotoPlus has such a tool. You can simply lasso the entire image and 'square up' the image by using the adjustment handles.BillAVSIM OmbudsmanFounder and Director,Creative Recycling of Aircraft Partshttp://catholic-hymns.com/frbill/FS2002/images/fartslogo.jpg
