Re: Paint recommendation for Optoma HD25e (light cannon) projector.

Hi Mech! I waited 4 hours before painting the second coat which is the first coat of the grey steel 1 00NN 31/000!! Its funny that this used to be called icon granite in its previous life....................Like you have already mentioned , the names change but the ici numbers remain the same lol.

I will now wait until very early morning before putting on the second grey coat.

Hi There mojogoes.

I have the same specs and I'm thinking about using the same BW combination.

What happened to your 3D brightness? Still fine or got too dark ?

Thank U.

Just check it before you roll the next coat. Drying time depends upon a number of factors including temperature and humidity.
Hi There mechman.

I have an optoma HD25e (120" projection) and I'm thinking about using the same BW combination (steel grey 1+AAA).

I'm going to loose to much 3D brightness? I'm gonna use it on a totally dark room.
Do you think Steel Grey 1+AAA is too dark for it ? Or Should I go for "veil" with AAA ?

Thank You.

Hi FabioMC!! I would think that "dulux grey steel 1" I would think a little to dark for a really dark / bat-cave and I'd be more inclined to use the standard n7.5 to n9 BW which would be more on line with the "grey steel 3 or 4" neutral greys.

With either of these tints you should be fine in 3d mode and if you don't think it is bright enough in 3d! you can always switch your pj from eco to bright to make up for it if its not doing so automatically anyway.....................Also try when your watching 3d to put it into top / bottom mode which gives an even larger 3d effect.

Another setting that I am currently using when watching bd movies is to put the hd25e / hd131xe / hd25 etc into the "YUV color space" setting before making any calibrations to the brightness / contrast and cms color settings. It then allows you to be able to calibrate to get shut of the ridiculously red and over tanned faces on all characters.

How much does your brightness drop when viewing 3D? You've probably got a ton of lumens in 2D.

I'm using a white paint wall with black background. The sidewalls and ceiling in the last 1 meter of the room is also black.
It's just fine in 3D right now but my black level is not enjoyable for me.

So this automatically tells me that your calibration is still to bright especially for a dark / bat-cave type of room.......................Just to say that at night with my walls and ceiling being painted white my contrast is set to -18 with brightness at -4 with color space on YUV and brilliant color at 4 just for starters................But just remember that these settings are not for watching tv/hd tv only bd.

My PJ is not calibrated using any tools. I just tried several settings found on those forum threads and chose the one that gave me the best PQ.

The contrast/brightness were calibrated using the basic patterns.

I've ordered an i1 Display Pro for properly calibrate my PJ.

Contrast -18 and Brighness -4 gives me a dim image. I don't use brilliant color.
