[00:43:36] tgm4883: Hmm, I don't think things scale like someone would think they do. Lets say I've got a theme with a baseres of 8k (7680x4320), but I'm using it on a TV that has a resolution of 1080P (1920x1080). What should I expect to happen to a tv show or video background image (fanart) that has a resolution of 1920x1080?
[00:45:34] tgm4883: I would think, that the baseres is used to calculate where things go, and that if an image needs resized (lets say the fanart was 1280x720) that it would only be resized once from 1920x1080 to 1280x720
[00:46:19] tgm4883: And if the fanart was 1920x1080, and the tv resolution was 1920x1080, that there would be no resizing of the image
[00:48:36] tgm4883: What I think is happening, is it's getting resized twice. Once to 8K, then once again to the tv resolution. I'm only guessing though based on how the image looks when this using a 1080P theme vs an 8K theme on the same TV
[02:04:09] tgm4883: Looking at the themecache, it doesn't inspire lots of confidence that the 1280x720 version of our theme has a particular piece of fanart that is 1.1M and the 8K version of our theme has the same piece of fanart at 631K
[02:05:22] tgm4883: Is this a bug, or expected behavior? If it's expected behavior, then there is zero reason for me to continue working on this 8k version since none of the artwork will be acceptable until people start making 8k artwork
