Hi Guys,
I posted the below in the "Sim Builders" section but got no responses so I thought I'd try it here.


I'm looking at fitting a curved screen to the front of my pit and project the forward view on to that.

I know from research online that I need some sort of "warping" software to get the picture to fit the screen but the ones I've seen are far too expensive for home use.

I did see one called "NTHusim" that seems aimed at home users, but they have been purchased by a bigger company and shut down.

Does anyone know of a freeware or reasonably priced program that does this ?

Thanks in advance,

Andy

Hi mate

Is the stuff from http://nthusim.com/ not good enough? There are two downloads at the bottom, have you tried them? In the past I came across a few topics about curved projecting but was not that bothered about it I will not have any answers for you I am afraid.

Those downloads appear to be for existing customers. It seems doubtful that AndyB could use them without having bought a license back when the product was still for sale.

Hi Andy B,

nThusim is no longer sold or supported they closed that division.. there are a few possibilities with Warping software one is here:


SimPit Warp:


https://www.simpit.co.nz/index.php/software/simpit-warp



another is Elise:

https://fly.elise-ng.net/



Now basically they are the same core program.. Now not sure what you would say is "reasonably Priced" both are spendy a bit.. I have never found an Open source warping program and free is NON Existent..

there are other companies but for the money this one is a really good one.. if you have any questions please feel free to ask..

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the responses.

Unfortunately I'm due to be "retired" from my job due to a hip problem in the next couple of months so am not in a position to spend that kind of money.

It was a nice dream.

Thanks anyway,

Andy
