Rear of projection screen

Recommended Posts

Morning all


I have 4 flown projection screens for an event in the round.  


For my visuals, I need the rears to be blanked out (they currently show the screen image in reverse)


Any one know of a clever way of blanking out the rear?  Or do I need to manually draw a solid behind to hide it?

If you add a FRAME and set it to 0 values then it should give you a blanked out rear.


Hope that works for you.

Andrew -


To have the tool black out the rear of the screen, your "Screen Type" has to be "Front Projector" and your "Frame" has to be either "Frame" or "Border Only."

Have you noticed z-fighting with the back of the screens? The polygon's aren't co-planar but @ 1:500 recently I had to resort to a frame rather than a border to avoid it.

Also, when editing a otherwise curved display in the OIP the top & bottom frames show the arcs full fill (all the way to the center point of the arc). The only way I found to fix the issue was cut/paste in place.


I'll take a screenshot next time these happen.
