H2 make a 1920x1080 screen to display only 1620x1080?

Thu May 23, 2019 9:34 am

I guess it's somewhere in the overscan settings but couldn't find anything for this particular case.

I have a 1920 x 1080 (16:9) monitor and I only want to user 1620 x 1080 (3:2) of the screen surface. I plan to cover up the rest with a mat. Where can I define these setting? Thanks!

Yes, I had seen that but it doesn‘t include 3:2 aspect ratio.

Output 1920x1080 but reduce the frame buffer size to 1620x1080

Code: Select all

framebuffer_width=1620
framebuffer_height=1080
If using omxplayer, raspivid, or other application that directly renders to the screen, then you'll need to pass it window options.
--win 'x1 y1 x2 y2' for omxplayer
-p, --preview : Preview window settings <'x,y,w,h'> for raspivid
