I don't understand the amount of stops reduced, is it variable from 1 to 1/4?

Is the 1-1/4 stop fabric thick enough to beam a small source light into it, and not have a hotspot? I'd like to use an Astra 6X at around 4ft away to result in a large even light source
Asked by: Andrew
That should be a good distance to get a even light onto the diffuser and not have a hotspot.

Others have asked, but it hasn't been clearly answered. I have the older Scrim Jim kit (tension fit, velcro). Will this fabric fit my frame?
Asked by: Jeff
I've heard the new fabric and frames are slightly larger than the old version. This fabric will likely be slightly too big for your old frame. Looks like Westcott wants to sell more new frames :)

I have a 6x6 Scrim Jim how do I tell if it is the old or new version? And will this fit if I have the old version?
Asked by: William
Great question, William. The old version of Scrim Jim used 3/4" thick framing and the frames connected to each other using a tension fit. The new version (Scrim Jim Cine) uses a thicker 1" frame and connects using a positive locking system. The new system also has corners that are NOT built into the frame, like they were in the original version. The sizing of diffusion silks are not the same for the new version, as we standardized the sizing to what is common in the industry for the Scrim Jim Cine lineup.

We have a Scrim Jim frame kit. Does this silk have velcro running along all edges to attach to a frame?
Asked by: Scott
The Scrim Jim Kit underwent changes in 2016 when it was upgraded to standard industry sizes, more mounting options, and more fabric options. This product is for the Scrim Jim Cine (new version) so please check your Scrim Jim version to determine if the sizing is the same. If you have further questions, please call Westcott customer support at 419-243-7311.

What stands and connectors are recommended for this frame?
Asked by: Andy
For a Scrim Jim Cine that is 6' by 6', a lot of people prefer to use two light stands with grip heads (Westcott part #1881) and Scrim Jim Frame Clamps (Westcott Part #1980) on each stand. If you want to use a single light stand, we recommend a heavy duty C-Stand with the same grip and clamp noted above as well as some sand bags for the base of the C-Stand.

question

Do these newer Cine versions of the cloth work with the older 4x6 frames that only have velcro?
Asked by: Joe
No. Make sure you purchase the 42x72 inch silks for the original scrim jim frames. I made the mistake of ordering the 4x6 cine silk and it was to big.

question

How small does the frame get when traveling? Does the frame break down to 4x 6ft pieces or are there 8x 3ft pieces?
Asked by: Resti B.
Hi Resti, Pete's answer below is correct and it packs into a nice soft travel case. The new cine style frame with the connectors is a vast improvement over the old design. Much easier to set up and sturdier when used in a windy environment.
