Greetings

Module images for Club of the Knobs CP8 (link below) is displaying too much white space in grid view which also appears on its module page when you click to enlarge panel image. I downloaded a new image from CotK's official site, properly cropped/converted/exported, then uploaded a new image but it's still displaying that extra white space. I tried this process twice different ways to no avail.

A bug perhaps?

CotK CP2 seems to be having the same white space issue. I didn't work on that image though.

Hi again ;-)

That one user, balpirol, has uploaded sever images incorrectly. Like this one https://www.modulargrid.net/d/club-of-the-knobs-cp1c

Anyways, unfortunately ModularGrid doesn't support CP sized modules in the way that 1U modules are supported for Eurorack (hint hint? ;-) so there needs to be a blank section photoshopped in to take up the extra height so that it works correctly in a 5U row. Some people have used white blank space but I prefer black or "module color" dark grey.

I've made up several CP module images for MG and I started out by taking the image of one that already works in MG and then pasting the new module image over the top. Here's one of mine for reference, https://www.modulargrid.net/d/moon-modular-551cp

Hi John

Thanks for this.

How did you know how much black to add in your Moon 551 image? Is there a minimum size standard I should be aware of?

I prefer black as well!

Cheers,
David


Hi David,

I think what I did was to take an image of any standard 5U tall module that is the same number of units/hp wide as the CP image I wanted to create and then placed the perfectly trimmed CP image over the top of it. I then selected everything below the CP image and replaced it with the solid color. The hardest part is just proportionally resizing one or the other image so that they are exactly the same width.

One sad thing to note, not all CP panels are the same height! :-/ Details are in the thread below, basically COTK CP modules are a little taller then how everyone else makes their CP modules.

But if you use the method I described, you wont have to worry about the height measurements since the U/hp widths are consistent.

I am taking notes, John, but I don't promise anything ;)
