    I have a DLP demo booked for Monday and as it is my first ever PJ demo, I want to find out how susceptible I am to the rainbow effect (and no, that doesn't include playing air guitar to 'Since You've Been Gone' :D ).

    Can the wise ones here point me to some scenes that show up the effect well.

    Thanks very much

    Take a film with subtitles on it. When your eyes flick down to read the subs if they 'smear' then you can see them. Funnily enough black and white films may show this even more than colour.

    I first noticed on Kill Bill 2 during the wedding rehearsal.

    Theres a shot of the preacher wearing a black suit and tie with a white shirt, scan your eyes horizontally across the picture and you might notice something.
    With that in mind, the Men in Black films might be good examples.

    Also subtitles or title sequences with white lettering on a black background.

    Hmm, looks like the 'Girls and Boys' scene from Prince's Under The Cherry Moon might be very useful for this - Black and White and every man is wearing a dinner suit!

    Reading subtitles is pretty revealing. Set them to on, on any disc (even better a contrasty B&W one) and try to read them.....

    Night scenes with car headlights will also work - try Heat
