Click on ‘Create mask’. The “create individual display mask” window will pop up, to create a mask for the selected projector on the fly.
The window consists of the tool section, white areas (visible areas), and black areas (masked areas that won’t be visible) The masking tools are operated by both mouse and/or keyboard.
Note: You can also create masks by a third-party tool such as Photoshop, paint, etc. in a 24 bit Bitmap format and then load them on to the calibration.
For more information on masking and a full explanation on the masking tools, refer to the Projection masking section.
When do I need masks for the calibration?
If there are areas that must not be projected onto, otherwise reflections will prevent the measurement
If there are areas that cut the projection due to structural reasons. Soft edges can only be measured with difficulty.
When there are areas that have too much overlap of projections to reduce the blend areas.
