scaling custom windows

jkershaw

hi all - I created a custom window that is looking great (for my needs) in 2D and 3D.

I would like to scale the length and width of this window part in order to create other sizes. In other words, I want to scale it WITHOUT scaling all the components.

The goal is to have one window object that I can use for multiple sizes.

I know this will require some GDL manipulation, and I'm not completely inexperienced with GDL, so I'd like to give it a shot and get it working. I would appreciate any and all assistance on how to do this correctly.

thanks!

In case anyone cares, I figured this out. Ended up rewriting a lot of the script and managed to add 3D and 2D hotspots, along with 2D stretching and masking.
