Roger once you said about 24' circular diffusion for big interiors. What kind of material do you prefer for make the diffusion. It's kind normal aluminum or iron? Generally what diffusion would you use for circular shape. When you use 24' circular diffusion in large interiors how much space it's evenly fill approximately.

I would always use something as light as possible. The large diffusion I referred to is a light grid cloth and it was hung from a plastic pipe as this could be bent to shape very easily.

That was just one case when 24' fitted the set we were shooting in. I have used all sizes.

For instance if you are going to shoot 100x100 size of the what kind of size circular diffusion will you use. May be you want the leave the wall darker.

As you suggest, it depends given the size of the space, how soft you want the light and how much you want it to fall off. You can always put in a circular cut outside of the diffusion if you want darker walls.
