    How do folks recommend making windows more opaque for projecting onto when doing the whole front of the house? I've got a bunch of garage door and bedroom windows that mess up otherwise nice, large projection surfaces. I was thinking white sheets behind the windows would still leave a...
  2. General Halloween
    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...

    Just a heads up. I noticed that TotalHomeFX (manufacturer of those projectors that HomeDepot and BigLots etc sells) has a sale going on on their Halloween projections. Single videos are 7.19 (from 8.99) and packaged video bundles regularly 29.99 are now 23.99. This looks like it includes their...

    It's my second year decorating at our new house. We don't get any TOT's since we live on a main road, but we do get a lot of cars driving by and slowing down. I have have two projectors running: second floor is a ghost bride loop and the first floor is a loop of sirens and wraiths. We have a...

    Hey everyone, so I bought three projectors off of Amazon for a pretty good price even though they're older models and one didn't come with the sheet.. but anyway, my question is this. I planned to do some of the atmosFX window projections but was worried the sound wouldn't be heard outside when...

    Hi everyone! I'm looking to build up a projector scene using AtmosFEARfx's 'Jack O' Lantern Jamboree' and, whilst the idea of using real pumpkins is great, I'm thinking that I'd like to create something that won't rot after a few weeks! I'm hoping that someone here can point me towards...

    I am having issues with a recently purchased DD. A little history I have purchased many downloads I have 3 projectors. Older Epson and Toshiba and a off brand from Amazon I use a Micca Speck on the older projectors and a USB drive So I bought the new Christmas DD. My son has tried everything...

    I'm going to be projecting some of the AtmosFX vertical scenes this year using a couple of Hitachi CP-X2010 projectors and some Micca media players. There doesn't appear to be any way to rotate the movies on either the Micca or the projectors, so I'm planning on just setting the projectors on...

    Trying to find a couple projectors for AtmosFX effects. Looking to spend no more than $100 per projector. Question is how many lumens do I need. Also if you have any experience with the Chinese projectors please let me know as I see them on Ebay all the time. Thanks everyone!

    I like AtmosFX stuff but they are just so limited. Is there ANY other company that is making digital decoration content for projectors? Scarab
  16. Wanted to Buy
    Looking to add a 2nd projector to my haunt. I have a cheapo $50 model I bought a couple years ago that actually works OK. Was wondering if there are any better ones out there for around a hundred bucks? Thanks for any help here...
  17. Halloween Props
    Hey everyone! Last year I bought one of the projectors from Home Depot. Has anyone tried using it to project from inside to outside? I have a big picture window that I would like to get some bridal mesh and hang in the front yard and project from inside to the mesh outside. Are these projectors...

    I was given a projector (free...yay!) but it has a very weak internal speaker and no audio output. What are my options, if any, to get sound?
  19. Halloween Props
    So I've searched and subscribed to many many projector discussion threads. People recommend new budget low lumen short throw projectors and high lumen long throw used projectors and everything in between. I'm looking for something pretty specific: a relatively high lumen (greater than or equal...

    I've used projectors in my setup in the past by buying old but high lumen ones off of ebay. I had success with 1080i Dell projectors as well as others, but I always found these older but high lumen projectors to be a huge compromise because they tend to only have vga or older composite vide...
