Anyone else notice the tendency for silver screens to turn dark blacks to midnight blue? It certainly shows up more in DIY samples, but I think that the commercial screens show it a little as well.


Anyone agree/disagree, have any suggestions, theories, etc. ?


Does this have to do with white balancing?

Well,

If you are using CRT with a blue tube in it I have a theory.But if not-I dont.

This is the tendency of Aluminum.


This of course can be color corrected at the projector

OK, put this in the pipe for a puff. Next time you're projecting a black and/or white scene, look up into the projector's lens (not directly of course!). I was noticing that things tend to look blue there as well. Even the beam of light tend to look blue.
