  • This is amazing!

  • Thanks for sharing Nash! Glad you are having fun with your LF1. Happy Holidays

  • Hey quick question - how were you able to get rid of the "gray rectangle" from the projector in this scene?  Yours looks fantastic, and I'd like to know how you achieved a fully black backdrop with the projection.  

  • Hi Skyler,


    I’m glad you liked our fun little holiday project.


    As far as your question about getting rid of the “Gray Rectangle”, there are a couple of things you can try.

    I’m assuming that you’re using the Epson 1060 “Kit” projector.

    You will need to turn down the brightness and/or increase contrast until the “Gray Rectangle” is basically gone while displaying simply a black image from the projector.  (Of course this will affect the brightness of your content.)

    The reason for this, is that lower priced projectors like the 1060, trade off contrast for lumens.

    In other words, they give you greater brightness for less contrast, most people want brighter.

    More levels of contrast will give you better blacks, so no “Gray Rectangle”, but with a more expensive projector.

    See Lightform's article "Understanding Contrast Ratio" for a much better explanation than I just gave. 


    For our background, it’s pretty technical… A black blanket ;)

    And be sure to REALLY tweak your masks for no light leaks.

    That’s it.


    I hope that helps.
