No worries MM. All I'm trying to say is that it is my personal decision to use a relevant post to effectively bump my own thread. That is just my own personal style. That does not make any assumptions or declare any other means good/bad. Frankly, I couln't care any less on the matter. If I did, I wouldn't complain here, I'd go to the forum hosts requesting a change of the posted guidlines....but again, that's my style too. I'd rather attack the head than the feet. The head doesn't move as fast

Perhaps thats another reason I brew my own beer. I rarely find one in production that I like, so, instead of complaing about it, I learned to make it myself. Now I can tailor a brew to my own liking, never compromising. the only one I need to please is myself (and my wife if it's a hard-cider).

The spirit thrives. I can't but help but wonder if I had some of your famous home brew how much better my screens might have turned out.

Why are we giving such bland and ordinary names to our screen creations? Many beers have such classy names, Hineken, Rolling Rock, Henry Weinhard, Pabst Blue Ribbon, Sierra Nevada, Olympia, Sam Adams, just to name a few. Why can't our screens? Just a thought.

And to think how many empties never made it past the neighborhood dumpster diver. And all this time I thought they were just buying food. What if they have better PJs than us? (this thread certainly has gone off track)

Nope. I think it's going exactly in the direction it can do the most good at.

Good grief, some of these threads go to hundreds of pages.

I have a Hitachi SX5500, which is an LCOS projector - it's an LCD projector but it's reflective. No screen door, 1500-2000 lumens I think I forget ... my only issue might be contrast.

I've been using the DAZian fabric so far in front of a sliding glass window (love the center speaker) but the wife wanted to see how the room works 'flipped'. So I'm tempted to paint a concoction on the wall to see how it looks.

So ... for a brighter projector that could use some more contrast, what formula would everyone recommend?

Particulars - myroom is 24 feel long and I usually project the entire length, so it's a 10 to 12 foot WIDE screen. Plexi is NOT an option

Well......., your PJ sports 1500 'rated' (...not optimized' )Lumens & 600:1 CR
Bright enough to punch out good whites on a Grey mix. but still needing enough contrast boost to require a "Grey" that might crush whites and dull colors.

So what to do/choose?

As for everyone, I could not venture to say.

But as for MississippiMan..................,

..............absolutely try the RS-MMMaxxMud mix.

1 Quart Behr UPW
16 Oz.Behr UPW Deep base
32 Oz. Ceramcoat "Gleams" Pearl #02601 (Michaels
16 Oz Ceramcoat "Gleams" Silver Metallic #02603
24 Oz. Minwax "Water based" Acrylic PolyUrethane
8 Oz. Distilled Water

On a Wall, Prime the surface with a UPW High Gloss, 2 coats.

Roll or Spray, you'll be happy on that day.

This mmud replacement is a little more involved. But the old opaque, grab a quart and slap 'er on solutions that send you to movie bliss despite the sales pitches will still have the majority of users. MistyEve may have a slight step on silverscreen being that light bulbs put out 48% red, 33% green and 18% blue. I know you've been the biggest advocate of spending the effort to get all light out of the theatre room but that still might be a plus. Sunlight, you're dead even again.

mississippiman....thats the same proportions of ingredients you gave for a 4805 user a few days back, other then this time the minwax was not stated as needing to be a satin finish. Can I assume that an X1 would need about the same proportions?

ender611,

i think CRMA was saying that misty evening's reign has come to and end... and he's recommending people go with the RS-MaxxMudd LL instead.

if that's the case then absolutely the Minwax Polyacrylic Satin Finish is the ingredient to use.

the RS-MaxxMudd LL mix when applied on top of a UPW gloss basecoat will give you all the controlled lighting performance you could possibly ask for... especially since most folks in controlled lighting run their PJ in economy mode. and yes, it is also the mix recommended for the X1 and 4805's.

if you have a higher lumen PJ and you have ambient light issues then go with the standard RS-MaxxMudd mix that i posted an update on Nov 13th in the RS-MMMaxx Questions thread.

yes the rs-mmmaxxmudd-LL out does ME by a fair amount but there will always be a big demand for the 'one stop, 'one quart', 10 buck, easily applied solution that UPW, silverscreen, misty eve offer.

With the rs-mm mix 1 quart UPW gloss, 1 quart UPW flat, 1 quart deep base, 5 bottles of creamcoat, however many cans of minwax...and now you're feeling quilty not spraying such an investment, and then you feel wasteful that there are two screens worth of paint still in the can after you're done.

The reign isn't over in. The quick, cheap and easies will always have their place. Just not with me, so I'll be giving your mix a go.

Blast, I missed the UPW GLOSS in the reply. Got all my stuff BUT that.

Will KILZ (gloss) by itself will work for a base coat?

Actually I think the can is Zinser, water based.

Thanks - gotta time crunch here, parents flying in tomorrow afternoon and I will not have time to mess with it after that.

How long between coats? Kilz says an hour, but I think the original mix here was 24 hours between coats?

I have no heater.

dejw,
absolutely. we've done a couple of z4's lately... beautiful machines by the way.
for the z4 in controlled lighting you'll want the rs-maxxmudd LL version. take a look at the RSMMMaxx Question thread for all the lastest info, tips, techniques, mix ratios, and advice from myself, mm, and others who have recently traveled down this road.

then if you've got some specific questions of your own... ask the board or pm myself for some straightforward answers.
