Vertical align in Materialize CSS

I'm trying to center a form on the screen using Materialize. I tried everything, but I can not do it for all resolutions and also be responsive. In certain resolutions it works perfect, but when you add or remove controls (), in some resolutions it looks good, in others it goes wrong. Some help? Thank you!

See the white line below. It is a resolution of 1366x768. If you add more input, it looks "normal" and responsive. But if you delete an input you can see how the white background is larger.

Based on the feedback you gave in the comments, I think all you need is to add min-height: calc(100vh - 64px); to .valign-wrapper.

That will fill the whole page. You may have to modify the background property as well to make sure the image fills up the whole element, I couldn't load the image so I couldn't test that. The vertical alignment is already working.
