I found this TruBlack flok, but I really need something wider for the top and bottom borders.

Re: Comtemplating the 2.35:1 screen...

Another way to work out the height of the projected image for zooming is to times it by 0.75 - EG 1080 x 0.75 = 810 which is how many lines you use out of the available 1080. This also works with the screen height...

As for masking, there are several adheisive flockings around, but many are not really black. The stuff I have access to is black and a light sponge

Black velvet material is supposed to absorb light really well.

It seems like I remember reading where regular velvet has something in it that doesn't absorb light as good as the velvet type material specifically made for absorbing light, but I can't seem to find it at the moment.

Some black velvets just look purple or dark grey when compared to the black stuff I use now...

Re: Comtemplating the 2.35:1 screen...

Hehe, good to know that I have your attention No I don't have a patent on it, but yes I am lining my new lenses with it because of its ability to soak up stray light. It is also the same stuf used on Oz Theatre's Majestic Scope Screens like the one I have...

Re: Comtemplating the 2.35:1 screen...

Well it looks like the Fidelio velvet is the most popular... and reflects zero light, even with a camera flash, so I am not sure how it can get much better than that. The downside appears to be price at $25 per yard. Of course, spending $100 or so for a good screen border is chump change in comparison to the entire theater room.
