Stretch to Fit

Top  Previous  Next

When pasting in the Pixel Editor's sequencing grid, Stretch to Fit stretches (or compresses) effects to fit into the area that you have selected, without regards to any timings within that area.

 

For example, consider timings at 0 seconds, 1 second, and 2 seconds.  Between 0 and 1 is a fade up, and between 1 and 2 is a fade down:

Events to be copied

 

These events will be copied, and pasted to the time starting at 5 seconds, with the area between 5 seconds and 7.5 seconds selected.  There are timings at 5 seconds, 7 seconds, and 7.5 seconds:

Where they will be pasted to

 

If "Stretch to Fit" is selected, then since the copied effects totalled two seconds in length, and since the area being pasted to is two and a half seconds in length, each effect will be stretched to 125% of its original length (since 2.5 seconds is 125% of 2 seconds).  Therefore, there will be a fade up from 5 seconds to 6.25 seconds, and a fade down from 6.25 seconds to 7.5 seconds:
