But it certainly can be.
I'm the one that suggested this to mmiles, as in my situation a VP is a better solution than a lens, with or w/o a VP.
I have 2.05:1 screen, splitting the difference between 1.78 and 2.35.
If I were to get a lens, the max theoretical brightness benefit would be 17% instead of 33%, though neither would ever be reached because of transmission loss.
Using combinations of stretching, compressing, and slight cropping, I'm going to set my Lumagen processor to make both 1.78n and 2.35 always fill the entire screen.
Can't do that with a lens.
