How big of a piece do you need Harp? Almost all of the theaters use circular 3d polarization. I'm assuming you would just need the glasses. :scratch:
Well I happen to have almost 30 gallons of water based aluminum paint sitting here! As we already know... Aluminum works for a great passive 3D setup.Sorry mech, BW™ won't work for passive 3D, too much TiO2 in the mix to retain any decent amount of polarization.
We seriously need to speak with their paint chemist. :yes:
I would need two pieces or one large piece I can make two filters out of. One to place on the flashlight or PJ and the other to look through. Of course for a real 3D setup you would need clockwise and anti-clockwise filters for right and left polarization, but for my needs just one would do. I might be able to get by with just 2 sets of glasses. I guess you can tell who hasn't been to see a 3D movie lately. :blush:How big of a piece do you need Harp?

My first interest in getting involved in Projection Paint was that the existing brand(s) are way to expensive for most people. I am convinced that it is also commercially interesting to have a brand that offers quality at a reasonable/low price.The only stipulations that I would have is that the paint would have to be cheap and that HTS members would get some sort of a discount. :scratch:
No problem, I should have figured that out for myself. :blush:I meant a 'sea container'. Sorry for the typo.
Or the cardboard on rolls they use to cover floors when redecorating house interiors: it is very strong, water resistant and with a proper primer paintable. I guess. But how do you stick it on the containers?The next thing to come to mind would be a fabric of some kind such as canvas, but keeping it taut so it won't flap or billow in the wind might be a problem.
The cardboard would work as well, but I have never seen it so I'm trusting your opinion. Being an outdoor event I guess rain could be a potential problem.Or the cardboard on rolls they use to cover floors when redecorating house interiors: it is very strong, water resistant and with a proper primer paintable.

By the way, I am already 55.lddude:I would like to invite my 3D friends to this forum, because they have extensive experience in filming and projecting 3D movies. And of course my paint 'nerd' (although this term is not really referring to a young person in his case; he is 54).
I'll do so now Bob. :T My substrate of choice (it's inexpensive, easy to find and easy to handle) for test panels is 1/8" tempered hardboard. I prime it with a white primer and then spray it with the mix I am testing.Look forward to your results Harpmaker. When you post those, could you mention what substrate you're using.
Sorry to hear that you lost out to a competing screen maker, but glad to hear your 3D friends now have a screen.Unfortunately for us, a screen maker (cloth, not paint) has decided to sponsor the big screen.
This is great news for my 3D friends, because this solves the problem of the uneven surface of the sea containers.
We keep on developing an affordable 3D paint however.
If you are interested in being informed on the progress and the results, please let me know. Or if you need some material for testing, in due time. I would be very honored if you would comment on the quality and see if there is anything to improve.
