    A create a few different scenes every year. Here are the main ones from 2020. The movie montage was my first attempt at making one, and it was waaaay more difficult than I imagined. It put me behind a good week. I run the projections every night through October. I use one Optoma EH460ST for...

    I am a novice digital decorator, and about a year ago I purchase the AtmosFX plus kit. I had trouble getting it to work, and to make a long story short I ended up with 2 of them. Regardless, I have not had much luck getting them to work very well. Either they fall over b/c the tripod is too...

    Hi, I'm in the UK and have for the last few years put on a very modest display in the front garden (yard) but as we're the only ones that do a Halloween display we get a nice number of ToTs. Last year (2019) I didn't do a display mainly because in 2018 we had a few items trashed or stolen - it...

I assume this means I need to turn the projector on it’s side and show a video that is formatted for vertical. I am requesting help with ideas on how I can keep the proctor on its side and...

    This is a 2DOF motion platform that is made to haul 2 rows of seats and seat 6 passengers. It used a Ultra Short Throw projector (an EST-P1) and a promethean interactive smart board for the mount and the projection screen. It originally used Anaglyph 3D, pictured, but now uses Active Shutter...

I added a photo so you can see about how much its short by. I need some ideas on what I can put on the sides to cover up the blank...

    I feel like there's a thread on here every few weeks asking for projector recommendations, yet here I am again... I've decided I should try using a projector to decorate, but I don't want it to be so obvious I'm using a projector. So I thought maybe I could hide one inside the shell of a...

    I have 4 Miccas, different brands but the same plug-ins because I am using them for older projectors. I need music to come from the projectors and found that I plug the speaker cord into the Micca it will play perfectly. I could not get it to play on any of the projectors when plugged into them...

    It's been a longtime goal of mine to make the singing busts for my Halloween display. I wanted to share how I did it, and make some recommendations for those who are interested in doing the same. First, I started the project with a budget in mind. I wanted to keep it under $500. Second, I...
