I got my screen prepped and painted friday/saturday, and was able to catch the game with it. My god man, I'm sure I'll end up doing the light fusion thing soon, but I sure as hell won't be resorting to a manufactured screen.... ever.
Thanks a lot man! Your time and effort are much appreciated!
Thank YOU, chadm!
A few sucess stories is what we've been waiting to hear. There has been much 'hesitant' posting, and even more speculation as to the validity of both SM/MM & SD/MM LF as workable DIY screens, dispite the abundance of Screen Shots.
But CMRA & Myself have both "Been to the Mountain Top" and seen "The Light." (Light Fusion, that is!
) so we of course had no doubts. But it's the trust and the actual efforts of those like you, Scoob5555, and what others have recently done that give the whole idea the creedence it deserves.
Best of all, those with SM/MM or Sd/MM screens who attempt Screen shots to "show off' thier screens should be able to produce results that are far better than the ones that the "Old Guard" were used to seeing, and thereby decried as irrelevent. It's the screen that makes it possible, the PJs we already know do a good job, given the chance.
Please post for us the type of set up your using. It is a good thing to have a consensus of what is being used, and how many different PJs are involved. LCD-DLP-CRT, all can stand to gain something from it all, even if it is only the acquisition of a fine screen for a ridiculously low investment. THAT IS what motivated this whole thing anyway. The splendid results were just all the more "Icing on the Cake".
...and remember, all you naysayers, unlike the Shot below, we didn't hold a gun to anybody's head!
