Is it possible to change Extents and have devices rescale accordingly?

I made the mistake of setting up my project extents at 100 km x 100 km. After some recalculations, it should be 68 km x 68 km. If I change the extents in the Project Settings, all my shape devices basically stay the same size and just crop themselves to the new size. I need them to downscale if possible. I could manually rescale the shape devices but something like the River device offers no scaling option and it would have to be redone from scratch.

Is it possible to rescale to new extents in World Machine?

Hi there,

Unfortunately, this is not possible. Render Extents are designed so that they are essentially ‘viewports’ into the world that you create; there’s no function to morph the world when you change a viewport.

I would probably see if you can just fudge it; 68km vs 100km is in the same ballpark.

Thanks for the quick reply! I will rescale this one manually and then be more careful next time :stuck_out_tongue:
