How many pixels?

Good Afternoon all!

So I have a screen at 1920 x 1080 pixels (a 17.3" monitor) and have visual stimuli set in the builder at a width of 0.7 and a height of 0.5.

Does anyone know how from these numbers I can determine the size of my visual stimuli in pixels?

Thanks for any help offered!

Hi Rob,

If you are using height units then your stimuli are 1080 x 0.5 high (=540) and 1080 x .5 wide (=756).

If you are using norm units then the calculation is 1080 x .5 / 2 high and 1920 x .7 / 2 wide.

Thanks very much
