We have a Problem. Unify works as Standallone perfect in V1.1x and V1.2x

We did Test it in V1.1 with my DAW DaVinci Resolve Fairlight. Perfect.

Today i did try V1.2 to make a Project ready. To demonstrate functionality of the tomorrow official release of DaVinchi Resolve 17.

The GUI does not Work. See Greenshot.

1. Intermediate Downgrade Howto?

2. Can this been fixed? 

3. Solution?

It looks like you might have Unify's GUI size set higher than 100%. Could you please try it at 100%?

If you must downgrade to v1.1.10, you will need to uninstall Unify 1.2 first. See https://pluginguru.net/unify/manual/doku.php?id=uninstall-106.

@getdunne no Chance do get access to the Button for settings. Before we do all deinstall my Wilfried asks where, in which File the settings for the GUI are Stores and If its possible to Chance it manual to say 50% instead of 200% or more.

Run Unify stand-alone to be able to use the Settings button.

Unify's settings are stored in a file called Unify.settings. The location is based on your user name; using my own name shane as example:

  • On Windows: C:\Users\shane\AppData\Roaming\PlugInGuru\Unify.settings
  • On Macintosh: /Users/shane/Library/Application Support/PlugInGuru/Unify.settings

The file is a UTF-8 text file, and the contents are structured as XML, so you must be careful when editing it manually.

  1. Make a backup copy before editing.
  2. Close all instances of Unify while editing the file.
  3. Use a true text editor or code-editor, e.g. Notepad++ on Windows or TextEdit in plain-text mode on the Mac.
  4. Observe XML tagging syntax.

Locate the line for the GUI scale factor; it looks like this:

<VALUE name="guiScaleFactor" val="1.0"/>

Change the value inside the second pair of quotation marks to 1.0, to set the scale factor to 100%. Save the file and run Unify to make sure the change works.

Got it. I did reduce the GUI INSIDE Windows also after this IT did Work. No need for new Installation. INSIDE Windows the GUI in Standallone was correct but DaVinci is using a OSD Design. This way allways the Mouse or other Things have allways a exact possition to finetune exact Data.

So both need to be done. config INSIDE Unify and also Same time Set Windows and Monitor to 100% Most modern cards have with 4k 150%

Thank you for these details, Daniela. The graphic environment in modern Windows and MacOS is becoming very challenging to support.

@getdunne I will check with New Davinci 17. Wilfried was asked for usability and you should look the Davinci 17 Video.

 

A lot of Tips inside there like Colorgrading and others are Relevant for Usability to Music too and Tey grow the Fairlight Core much. Special the Collaboration Features Are great. Maybe a Collaboration Serve as Cloud can be interesting for PluginGuru Musicians can be usefull as a Service.
