Resolution gauge: metering
When an operator sizes a camera window smaller or larger than optimal, marks appear
in the rectangles of the resolution gauge. Figures 19 and 20 illustrate metering, when an
operator sizes a camera window with the mouse. The icon’s bottom row behaves the
same way for NTSC and PAL.
Fig. 19. Meter in resolution gauge: Camera window is stretched from smaller than
optimal size to optimal size.
Fig. 20. The resolution gauge reports how far or close a camera window is from optimal
