    Hi there Darius!

    We'd be very interested in seeing how you set this up! I'll reach out to you in a ticket so we can check it out.

    Thanks!

    Darius, just curious is there a particular resolution you were finding our Templates lack supporting? Currently, our new ones support, 4k, 1080p, 1366x768, 1280x720 in landscape. They also will support portrait but currently, we have a limitation with the editor we are looking to improve in the future.

    That being said we'd love to see what you did.

    Mat, no, your presentations worked just fine for these resolutions, but only for landscape or portrait ... as intended. I have no complaints about that. I simply needed a single presentation that could work both in portrait and landscape for 1080p and 4K (that is what we are currently using) as our default presentation. I am not gonna lie, it took me some little time to figure this one out, but the solution was rather very simple, there is nothing special about it, and it freaking works. I emailed Robb the ID of that presentation where you can take a look.

    Hi Darius, I checked out your presentation, looks slick! This is using our older editor and I think it is a great solution for that and is actually something we've used in the past. You will notice the CAP Alert Template is built like this. We did not decide to proceed with adding to the other older Templates because our editor stage did not support the fluid nature and was not responsive. It would just cause user experience issues with people who do not know HTML.

    We decided instead it was best pursed with our new editor and Templates. Currently, our new editor is fluid and the templates are responsive and will work on most all 16:9 resolutions as stated above. All of them are built with the @media checks and orientation modes similar to what you used. Its a matter of introducing a new feature to the editor so users can switch ratios or into portrait mode as well as be able to select multiple instances of images/videos etc. For example, a background image for landscape mode might not be suitable for portrait mode. This is something we plan on deploying in the future. In the meantime (excluding Templates with background images) you will notice our new Templates do work in both portrait mode and landscape on a player. You just can't see that in the editor at the moment. 

    Hopefully, that helps, let me know if you have any questions. 

    - Mat

    Mat, I actually used the new editor (HTML), I have not touched the old editor for a couple of years now. Unless by 'new' you mean them templates I cannot get into HTML ))) You foolproofed those pretty good and dumbed them down along the way LOL

    Yes, I noticed that RSS template is responsive ... images need padding or margins on the left in portrait mode, though. The background problem I addressed by using fully square images ... so I could spin them however I wanted )
