Mirror warp in Eclipse Alpha Advanced RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am currently running Eclipse Alpha Advanced on a Windows 7 laptop in a 7 meter diameter dome using a spherical mirror.  It runs very smoothly, however, the warp appears different from the mirror dome warp in Layerscape Beta.  In eclipse alpha, objects appear elongated.  For example, Saturn's rings in 3d solar system mode appear curved and stretched when projected on the dome.  This was not the case in Layerscape Beta.  I'm wondering if there is something I need to do to correct this within the software?  Or will this be fixed in a future update?

    I would prefer to continue to use Eclipse Alpha Advanced because it runs faster and smoother on Windows 7.  Layerscape Beta tends to hang when selecting new tours or switching from solar system to sky view.

    Any insight would be greatly appreciated.  Using WWT has resurrected an old planetarium at our K-8 school!

    Thank You.
