Wendy, maybe I misunderstood: what are you using your screen shots for?
When designing a backdrop, I overlay the combinator device screenshot layer using "Add" so I can see where the controls are located when adding graphic assets like plates or sub-layers, etc. The old combinator template included the 4 knobs, 4 buttons, and wheels, but as Reason 12 has so many variations now, that is where a snapshot of each particular combinator comes in handy, as it helps guide my layout. Ditto for any custom-designed combinator – I would take a snapshot to be used as a design guide.

pretty sweet to see Reason 12 is turning a bunch of musicians into art students. :lol:
You must’ve missed the PUF days. There were several great looking user mock-ups floating around. Cool to see those can be actual devices (of sorts) now.
more like forgot. the ol’ memory banks get purged more and more regularly these days. 😅

Thank you Ryan for this FREE Combinator 2 graphics asset pack and to Wendy for the advice. I'm locking myself in the studio for a few days to design several skins. Exciting.

Cheers for ^sharing R.

1st attempt at creating a patch for my MIDI Controller. Enjoying the process so far.
Good break from patching wires lol.

I don’t know if I’ve understood you correctly, but it may be more accurate to do screen shots at 200% due to scaling rounding errors. I’ll post further findings soon…
I originally did make 200% snapshots but went back and replaced with 240% snapshots, which I used to test making my 4U 8x3 Rotaries backdrop. But even a 240% snapshot ends up being only 3620 x 1326px – smaller than the recommended backdrop size of 3770 x 1380px, thus, it had to be scaled up to the recommended template dimensions.
I'm getting super confused trying to maek my first Combi2 backdrop. I took a screen shot of the Combi with Reason scaled up to 200%. If I crop the resulting image down to the width of the Combi it is 1508 pixels wide. So I'm a bit stuck on this bit! :-/ Not sure what I'm missing or doing wrong here. Obviously scaling up in a graphics/image editor to 3770 from 1508 is not ideal ....... that's before trying to get my head around Gimp because I don't have Photoshop anymore. Also trying Affinity Designer on iPad. It's going to take a bit of time to learn this App before I can really do much with it I think. Looks good though.

Hey, you need to scale it up inside of your graphics program, bcs you just use it as a guide for your actual graphics. The size that is recommended by Reason is there to maximise quality on every display-scale and ratio. Use the templates givin you by Ryan, import your buttonlayout, scale it up to the needed size and start building.

You can scale the image by 125% to get it to the correct size (when taken at 200% application zoom). This is just a reference - you don’t use the scaled image in the final result so there’s no concern with scaling the image!

would be great, if anyone could paste a psd file with background and basic things and grid. i think this will clarify a lot...

I don't understand the 125% scaling part. Scaling my image taken at 200% zoom in Reason doesn't get anywhere near the 3770 width. I'm not following this part at all :?

EDIT: just seen you posted in the other thread. I'm going at this on several fronts!! :D A multi-pronged attack to try and work out what the what what is going on here! :crazy:
