I'm not a Footlambert expert....
But if 3D = 5fl and 2D=14fl
does that mean 2D is almost three time brighter then 3D?

So if a normal Grading monitor is set to 100 cd/m2.... would the 14fl vs 5fl
difference be the same as having the monitor set to 30cd/m2

Thats a HUGHE difference. I'm surprised that a 2 projector setup isn't the
only aproved way to to it. Or at least a super stong lamp.
