I think I'm gonna have to go a bit further back due a support beam that cuts across the middle of the room. I'm either around 8' or 12', so I chose further away to get the bigger screen, and figure with the brightness of the Benq projector, it shouldn't be a problem. Ideally though, I agree with you about the 10' distance.
Lol, yea I was thinking velvet but typed felt.
I "felt" that was your intent, but I could not be sure.
We're probably going to do a curtain "top" valence and curtains on the side. Would you recommend the same material or something different?
Thinking something sort of like this:
The same material only in a pleasing, deep matte Color (Red-Burgandy-Ultra Deep Blue) will be very easy to drape, creating your own design.
Understood. I've come to the realization I'll be buying a sprayer and doing it in the house, just masking off the area and having an exhaust fan.
One followup question, I see your brief explanation of the differences in the 3 mixes, but can you link or expand further the differences and uses. Just trying to get a better grasp of why choose XYZ because of XYZ.
It's kinda hard to be more descriptive without being redundant ( MississippiMan is NEVER
But here goes.
RS-MaxxMudd Retro v.2.1
has the advantage of having more Silver in the mix, so it more greatly enhances Colors and Blacks. It also has the highest gain, so that means it has a slightly smaller viewing cone (...most cannot tell however...) and under certain conditions ( PJ position as relates to viewing position ) one might be able to ascertain some slight graininess (sparklies) This "Spray Only" mix is best for PJs who lack both Lumen output and who have poor contrast specs. That's becoming more of a rarity these days.
is the basic standard approach...improved ambient light viewing under low to moderate ambient light situations, while also enhancing colors and deepening Black Levels. Spray OnlyRS-MaxxMudd LL v.2.1
is the "Whitest" of the RS-MMs, and intended for use with PJs that use lower lumen output (...or Iris Reduction) combined with better contrast specifications to achieve the deepest possible Black Levels. Under such dictates, it's usually a case that the room is a Dedicated Theater, Walls & ceilings are ideally colored, and light is under complete control. It's ability to be rolled on instead of sprayed is due to the increase in UPW as additional masking for the reflective particles, although just as every other Painted application, it's overall performance is enhanced when it is sprayed.
Is there a good DIY thread about the painting/spraying technique for the material and examples of what people have accomplished with an updated listing of information. I've seen bits & pieces talking about it through various pages of different threads, but haven't seen a consolidated source about the steps to take and tips about the process.
With some of the original threads going back 2,5,7 years in the past, I was hesitant to take for granite that doing it a certain way is still deemed your recommended current approach. Such as best painting tools technique, etc. Thanks for helping out a newb hoping to be able to pass on knowledge to others.
Ok...now that's a typical comment coming from someone who has only made a cursory attempt to find information. We / I see that sort of plea all the time, so don't try to fool us. You can take it for "granite
" we are all not "stone
" deaf to such.
If you focus on reading my specific threads, almost all have such detailed information within them. It's easy enough to find a complete listing of my Threads...just move your Cursor over my Name just under the Skull Avatar and click on "Threads Started by...". Look specifically for the more recent Threads, especially anything that has "Spraying" in the title.
(...but if you remain uncertain about anything, just Pm me a specific request....I'm almost always readily available to answer...)
Yeah...a really explicit, fully detailed "Sticky" up top of the page would be a great asset, but honestly, direct interaction (...including the occasional "Phoned in" request for advice...) seems to both dispel both the doubts and any misconceptions people develop after reading even the most detailed of dissertations.
Besides...if everyone could simply go to a reference Thread for all the advice and info they could ever need, I'd be able to be put out to pasture.
No more leading the Herd. No more locking horns with strays. No more "Cow patty humor".
Maybe after I reach 20,000 posts...........
