Great ideas D-Man,
Firstly a few people have mentioned having mulitple lilliputs / screens etc, some have said the will motorized out from behind or underneath etc, no body has come up with decent enough designs as to how well this will actually work, some have suggested old cd rom drives modified to handle a lilliput screen etc.
Secondly, 4 cameras is eactly what i said im gonna have, dont be suprised if a lot of people here turn around and say "Whats the point" cos i can! thats the point. as for pan and tilt, expensive - big - bulky - ugly!!! there is a slick arse webcam that will pan and tilt allow not very functional it sort of works find it on ebay!, i agree pan and tilt is cool, me perosnally id have pan and tilts and our software will support them too, bear in mind its a webcam hence usb.
Thirdly do you mean nview? or is that just for geforce and nvidia chipsets,
Finally theres a bout 10 different threads on here all detailing HUD, some have tried it most have failed,
vfds seem to be the way to go, if you do get such luck with the film let us all know! WITH IMAGES!
