However, I’ve opened up a lot of panels from different developers to see how they work, and every one I’ve looked at is saved in pixels, and every one of them is 380 pixels tall (implying a DPI of about 75). For example, the panel for SEQ3 in the Fundamentals collection looks like:
VCV used to recommend pixel dimensions. Then it changed to mm to more accurately reflect the size of Eurorack modules. The documentation says px are not supported but they are (meaning that they work at least for now…). A lot of developers have not bothered changing their graphics from px to mm as for now everything is working as is. Even some Fundamental panels and components are still px I believe.
If you want to check some panels that are made in mm, check MindMeld and I think Marc’s Impromptu modules are all converted now too.
yes, all the comments here pretty much answer it. And I believe that newer VCV modules use mm. You have noticed that switching units from px to mm is non trivial. There are ways to make it work, but you need to be careful.
btw, I’m still using pixels, as my drawing tool of choice does not support mm.
