Reduce monitor resolution to ease calibration
Authored by: jef_pearlman on Jun 26, '07 10:02:40PM

Don't most LCD screens (which pretty much all laptops and a large fraction of recent desktops) do antialiased scaling when operating at below-native resolution? So it seems like you would get the blurring problem (though whether that would mess up the illusion, I don't know)...

Ahh yes, LCD screens would indeed do that at non-native resolutions. I'm pretty sure it wouldn't actually noticeably affect the calibration process, though.

The blurring is a welcome side effect from the resolution decrease. It doesn't require you to squint as much in order to blend foreground to background.
