Straight port, minor cropping on panels one and two. Content/impact preserved. It helps that this is one of the few “full size” pages in the scene – along with the redone 5 through 9. The rest were all 1800×2400 and as such were scaled up… and are about to be scaled back down again. Production didn’t move to 2250×3000 until Clarity. Yeah. One of the yay points for the second edition reformatting – every single page is 1849×2774@300dpi (which cleanly downsamples to the web 600×900 – as does 1850×2775, but for whatever reason I locked into one pixel smaller and I’m sticking with it, dammit*), has the same font sizes, the same gutters, the same yadda yadda yadda. The pages are lower rez than TV (2250x… something- TD1E width, adjusted for height to 6×9) or DCR (something like 400dpi), but like both projects, TD2E is internally consistent in a way that TD1E never was.

* For the first four chapters, anyway. Since this thing cleanly splits into two segments, I don’t have any qualms making minor template adjustments going into the “back nine.” Right now, I’ll be happy just to get there. Spending my nights and weekends re-photoshopping five year old documents may be the right thing to do for The Dualist, but I’m here to tell you – it FUCKING SUCKS. Tedium, I thought I knew ye.
