    Hey gang,

    Had a discussion the other day,. based around using actual mattes in the matte box.

    I occasionally run into some reflection issues from filters etc that I cure by using a matte when other methods don't work.
    (Ok I'll use gaff tape) I was reminded of this by a friend who helped me with an issue last week.

    How many actually use Mattes in their box these days???

    I tend to rely on a strip of gaff tape when I need it. Haha.
