I mentioned that it could be a large background, and by that I meant it could be an obsecenly large [scrolling] background. Even if it is a scrollable screen, by all directions, things severeal horizontal screens away would still be the same walkbehind level.

I'm just curious if we are talking about a very large screen, or not.

Yes, please remember that you can have multiple walk-behind areas of the same colour, if they can share the same baseline.

But it's a reasonable request, I'll bear it in mind.

It IS a large background, of course(about 4 times an aveage room), but believe me, I know every trick in the book to minimise walk behind use and it's still a hard limit to work with.

I can imagine this being a problem to anyone with a rather sophistocated background too, like a jungle scene or something.
