force aspect ratio?

Hey guys,

Anyone know how to lock an aspect ratio for the purposes of positioning? I'm trying to make it so that even if displayed on a 16:10 monitor, the composition is still 16:9.

Thoughts? rb

Just to be clear... I'm using QuartzBuilder, which doesn't have a lock aspect ratio function to which I'm aware. I'm not using the built-in Quartz renderer, which does have lock aspect functions.

NSWindow can lock to an aspect ratio with a one line of code call. Does Quartz Builder allow you to edit that sort of stuff?

not sure... for now i'm hacking by rendering in an image, and sizing that by grabbing the window width * 9/16 and making that the height.

As an aside, do you have a link to creating a composition as an app? Any starting point?
