Reverse scan (i.e. mirror image) monitors are often used by puppeteers. In the old days you'd use a CRT with modified scans (it wasn't a standard feature), these days it's easier just to delegate a resizer or DME in the mixer and send it out via a spare aux output from the vision mixer.

Apparently the guy who did Roland Rat used to bring his own modified monitor with him before it could be done easily on vision mixers.
Write that down in your copybook now.

Yes - that was my experience working with Roland too.

From what I've read Henson's productions were fiercely protective of using normal scan monitors.

I wouldn't worry about worrying whether something has been posted before, because the chances are it probably has. If in doubt I'd argue if a video was uploaded this month it probably hasn't been posted here.

And even if it had, people might not have seen it before and aren't going to go through all 317 pages to see what has been posted already.
