Video Screen Skirt

Gents -

In terms of setting screen height, both the Landru Design version (what you're calling "stand-alone") and the Spotlight version work exactly the same way: Video Screen (or VS4-Projection) consider the Active Layer Plane as the "floor." As David explained, the "Z" value in the OIP sets the measurement from that floor to the bottom of the screen, including the screen's border. Stands, such as a screen's "Goalpost" stand or a projector's scaffolding, also see the Active Layer Plane as the floor. The only exception to this is if you enter a different value into the "Floor Height" parameter. Save for the new concept of Layer Planes in 2010, this is the way the VideoScreen tools have always worked.

I hope this helps clear up any frustration or confusion...
