Lens Parameter - Can't overshoot?


Recommended Posts

Hi All, I am having an issue where the lens information on an inserted projector will not diplay properly. Essentially I am adding a projector that is ~22 feet away from the screen. Screen is 13'6" x 24' standard fast fold. If I select "place projector by distance" It diplays the incorrect (and Non existent) lens value. If I select the lens that I want to use (.80) then the projector does not realistically sit on the truss position it needs to.


Has Anyone else figured out how you can override this default?

Thanks Andrew. I managed a work around by setting the lens calculation as needed on the Screen Plug in Object, then turning off the "display Projector" option. Then inserted a symbol for the actual projector. I then aligned the locus point of the lens edge wiht the projection cone to get it to line up properly.
