Hi to all, they are new here.
one question:
someone of you has already resumed of the background painted?
is realistic the final result?
I would have to resume a diorama to the sunset with 64T or V2 200T.
many thx for now

I've never used painted backdrops (I can't paint :( ) but I don't think they'll look realistic in any format.

In "The Proposition," they used a painted sunset backdrop in one scene and it looked amazing. In order to make it close to the real thing you have to not only have a talented artist to paint the background but you have to light it just right, which takes time and effort.

Kev,

THe article suggests that the sunset backdrop was a Translight backdrop printed from still photos, not hand painted.

Cheers,

Daniel

You're right, I don't know why I missed that.
