LED Curved Stage

LED Curved Stage

This map provides an alternative set up with a curved mesh used for the LED wall. The LED wall is composed of four sub-sections, two on the left and two on the right, hence why there are four screens within nDisplay_InCamVFX_Config under the root component. You can customize these sub-sections to use this as a starting point to describe any type of curved LED displays, so that it matches your hardware configuration.

Chroma Key

In the Details for nDisplay_InCamVFX_Config in the Curved Stage map, there is a control setting to enable the chroma key, allowing control over the visibility of that layer.
