My beliefs still hold true that I think the next "big" DIY thing will be in the use of layered films... one day maybe I will enough time and resources ($) to continue working on this theory.
I hope no one thinks I'm laying claim to inventing the concept of projecting to a black screen. I personally haven't seen it done but then again I only view black as a very dark version of a neutral gray. So I guess you could say we have all seen that done.
Everyone is looking for some magic to come out of DIY and IMO and having done a lifetime of creative thinking those magic moments are few and far between.
It's interesting to note when this thread was an unknown still, how excited people were to unravel it. But once the simplicity was unveiled and it was apparent it was something that would work but did so in a different manner than what was hoped, the discussion stopped for the most part.
I wish gwrieger would tell us more about the great black screens of the past I Googled that term and didn't find a hit. Are these screens something that were made and then never to be recreated again. Is that the all that are working on this.
As to films and a break thru in DIY you could be right. It's too bad you are short on time and cash to pursue these ideas. That's pretty much my problem also on a lot of things I would like to do.
I did have a little spare time tonight and I took the mini black screen and hung it in front of my full size screen in the way of a test screen. No macro trick or treat this time. I then set my projector on full power and added in the light boost and then maxed the brightness. I was heard to say I'm givin her all I got captin and I don't know how long I can hold her together.
Any guesses on what the image looked like with the XR10X throwing to black from 14 feet this time? Oh and lights out.
My cam was in the truck or I would have posted pics. I will try and get those shots up before the weekend.
Lets just say I think BigLyle might be a bit surprised.
