    Could someone advise me on the pros and cons of illuminating a black scrim as compared to a white one? If one is to project an image onto it from the front is white obviously the better choice? Also are there any decent websites covering this topic? Thanks Oh Well

    While it is possible to use them differnetly, Generally you use a black scrim to make things appear and disappear. While you use a white scrim for projections and to give a soft look to things behind it.

    Sorry, I don't have any websites for you.
