PART  8      Finishing  the  Visuals

You may remember we made a curved projector screen to wrap the visuals around the Simulator ?
The problem is, if you use three Projectors they will butt together at the edges
but the Horizon is not straight and runs off at odd angles due to the curve. 
We Use FLY ELISE Software to correct and blend into one image.

It's a bit of a long process, using a laptop connected to the visuals computer,
you measure your screen, devide it up and drag many points to line up
with marks on your sceen.  You use a Laser Leveller to line up.

After lining up, the image curves around the screen, the software then
remebers this and sends details to the projectors.
