Actually I think that there *might* be some helpful info in the Jon Boe tutorial online here at FDS too.

Marnix,
If your only using 2 projectors and you have the wall on side 90 degrees to the front how is the side views projected without distortion?

Great pictures. I can clearly see the projection throw length of the front 2 and see that your 2 sides are about the same distance. The idea of the black paint is very good, flat sheen non reflective? Also thought I saw some movement in the video's. Superb job! Cool

Tim,

I am actually using 4 projectors, 2 for the front view and 1 for the left and 1 for the right view. If you scroll down the page you can see the projectors better, the black painting wasn't done then.

Previously I used only 1 projector for the front in combination with a mirror but as the screen is to wide I changed to 2 projectors, giving great quality.

And euh Rodney, the movement you saw was certainly our fear of flying filming guy shaking a bit upon landing Very Happy

Greets,

Marnix

I am probably very late to the game (considering the age of this thread!), but I was just wondering if this one projector route was still feasible. By using a curve mirror, you can solve the issues of having multiple projectors for your curve screen.

Skimmed through this thread but couldnt find this one projector reference...
One projector can only give you "X" FOV...
Using a curved mirror wont magically give you 180 FOV, it may just "expand"
a single view to fill a bigger screen, but it wont magically give you more FOV.
The result will be a stretched/distorted image I believe.

PS...got goose bump reading that thead...seems like a lifetime ago Shocked
