Is it impossible to maintain good contrast and dynamic range when using masks and scanlines on a typical ~400 nit LCD?
I’m not willing to reduce the scanlines to less than a 2:1 ratio (visible:black). This is what you’d see on a consumer-grade CRT that’s been well-maintained and properly calibrated.
Challenge: come up with settings that result in good contrast while using 2:1 scanlines and a mask effect.
“good contrast” - white should appear as pure white, not off-white or some shade of gray.
Bonus points for using a mask effect that is visible at normal viewing distance.
