Re: Making A DIY Anamorphic Lens

Do you have a piece of MDF the height you require, or are you butt joining a piece for the extra height and width.?
What thickness are you using?

Re: Making A DIY Anamorphic Lens

I used your measurements exactly. I noticed there is a bracket around the lens for adjustment I will be making it tomorrow. If I can work out how to attach a pic I could show you my build but right now I cant see how to do it in a reply.

I painted my sub today in black metal finish looks great next I will be making a grill for it with speaker cloth. cheers

You then select "Go Advanced" on the reply form..so you can preview your post.
Copy the IMG link of the photo in Photobucket, and paste it directly to your post..

Re: Making A DIY Anamorphic Lens

It can't hurt to black out the sides that you don't want light to exit from. I actually want to black out the edges of my high end cylindrical lenses.

Re: Making A DIY Anamorphic Lens

That's good to hear THX!

Unfortunately that black paint won't be suitable..Even though it's black, it will look glossy through the edge of the prism, and still reflect light..
What you need is stated here..It's the only product I know of that's readily available..and it's the flattest black possible..When applied it looks like the chemical black that's used inside camera lenses..

"It's a 2 part application..consisting of a glass primer and a carbon black fluid acrylic..
This product is available from Artists supplies..The brand I found was Jo Sonja's..which I bought online.."
