With rear projection or front projection the same problem exhists. To lessen the problem is to create distance from the pilots point of view. Depth perception in humans ends at approx. 10 - 12 feet, I plan on front projection in my project, screen 10 feet from pilot point of view, and still expect to have some paralax effect. It takes a lot of space, it's either that or colimating mirror.Matt O.www.a340project.us

Hi Leilson,Just a thought, but what about changing the FS cockpit viewing position. There are settings, I think in the aircraft.cfg or panel.cfg file, that can be changed to adjust the seat forward, lateral, and height positions. I read a post awhile back referencing this method to raise and maintain a specific seat height position.This post has me concerned since I hope to add an lcd projector to my flightdeck soon.Richard

I agree! I've been working on mine for a year, and this the first I've read about a paralax problem.Richard

I've thought of this problem quite a bit, I don't know what the percentages are. But as I mentioned earlier, greater distance is the best answer. Another thought, as Richard mentioned, move the center of display. My thought is, using a three way switch for Capt. view (display centered from capt. point of view), center view (centered to the flight deck), and First Officer view (display centered from F.O. view).Matt O.www.a340project.us
