Application Hack
« on: August 26, 2023, 08:18:34 AM »
if anyone has too much time... i need to change the maximum video file export size for artmatic 3.0

searching for "1440" as ASCII in the resource fork and in the data fork lead to nothing (not really surprising) until now.

unfortunately the program uses the dumb "pict" format, which might actually have a 4000*4000px limit by definition, but otherwise quicktime-created formats should not have any limits, isnt it?

v-track, another program from the same people, which also can render artmatic files, offers 2048*1536 where artmatic has 2048*1440.

so it is highly likely that the limit is really only in the numberbox GUI.

which unfortuntely does not use any "apple" menu resources.

Then the obvious thing to do next is search for 1440 in hex which is 0x05A0. You'll probably get many hits, so search for the other possible values and see which are in proximity to each other.

If you don't have a proper disassembler at hand, try to have a look at data fork with this app, maybe that helps to locate what you're looking for.

ah, solved. thanks guys.

it works when you save from the file menu(!) instead of the fancy export icons.

i never used this in the last 20 years because until now i did not had the need to export bigger stuff.

it is a bit weird that the other dialogs have limits.

but eric wenger just told me it would not have limits and then i questioned myself and had a look again.

which is suprisingly often the solution to technical problems. :P
