I was just wondering... how do you guys make sure that you hit exact powers? Like for forks... how do u make sure u hit 2.73 or something? Do you guys have a little homemade, hand drawn powerbar/ruler thing on your screen?

Overkillllllllllll

I have accurate formulas, and trust myself to *hopefully* land on the mark within .01 or .02, its usually the difference between 450-500 and a 600+ core shot

THIS is overkill

Red being whole powers (1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0)

Blue being half powers (0.5, 1.5, 2.5, 3.5)

Yellow being quarter powers (0.25, 0.75, 1.25, 1.75, 2.25, 2.75, 3.25, 3.75)


The other part above is the screen split, the first being the basic 8 part for boomer angles. (4.0 power)

the next is the 20 part split, used commonly in the 3 bar method (powers range from 2.7-3.0 depending on mobile)

the final is the 30 part split, used for the 2.4 method (powers do vary from 2.2 to 2.5 +/- given distance and mobile variations)

Thats honestly not to bad, I used something similar by hotforevers when I was still new to a 20 part screen to reference my landmarks, never taped to my screen, but on the desk so I could see "right on the SS symbol is 5 parts" and I now have 20part sd memorized, as far as those power breaks, fairly simple, most people can eyeball down to .25 increments

1 pixel is almost exactly .01 power. Everything else, I just visualize halves, thirds, quarters, and fifths.

Hmm, I remember reading somewhere that the power bar on the new interface is a little bit off?

but its still confusing to me hitting 2.4 getting confused with 2.5 or 2.6. How exactly will you measure pixels.

Experience, You, in most cases, can eyeball a fairly accurate .25, .5, and .75 because they are very easily broken down, and in time you will learn what a .1 increment of power is about, to this day when I'm marking the power to drag to, I take it to a 1/4 breakdown and slide it from there, the only exceptions are 0 wind powers I use all the time, which, seeing how almost all my shots are a 70 base, 1.35, 1.9, 2.3 and 2.7 for 1 screen

the one I have is much easier than this. 1/4th of 1/4th power bar might be simple, but I prefer 1/10th :)
