  1. Lighting: Used projector for effects that can also be used for my computer? Min resolution?

    Halloween Props
    While I love my xd500u Mitsubishi projectors, they don't seem to have sufficient resolution for computer use. I want to hook my mac mini up to a projector for double-duty use in my home studio, running / playing with a soft synthesizer called Omnisphere 2. What resolution should I consider...
  2. NEVER Enough Time!

    General Halloween
    I am so bummed. I was trying to get things together for Halloween, and it just sneaked up on me. It is only a few days away, and I haven't had any time to set up decorations, or even shop for a costume. So here on my coffee table sits four brand new Epson digital projectors, two brand new...

    Halloween Props
    I know there are many posts on here on this subject and believe me, I have read them all. So... I am a novice to the video projections. I have never even been around a projector. I am doing it this year though and I need to be talked to like I am a child. I have a huge picture window on the...
  4. Lighting: Please recomend a projector for UK (either new from Amazon or used from ebay)

    Halloween Props
    Hi, As Halloween is nearly upon us again, I have been thinking about adding new stuff to my display. This year I'd like to add one or more projectors to my display with singing pumpkins and digital decorations projected onto the windows. Can anybody (from the UK) recommend either new...
  5. Electronic/Software: Should I turn off my projector after so many hours to prevent overheating?

    Halloween Props
    I am reading some Amazon reviews that say projectors should only be used for 3-4 hours then turned off for a while to cool. I have two new LED projectors (about 100 lumens) and I did notice that my AC adapters get really warm only after about 30 minutes of use. Does anyone give their...
  6. Atmosphere Effects: Projector noobie - a few questions

    Halloween Props
    Hi guys. This is my first year using projectors. I picked up the Home Depot (atmosfear kit) projector and I have 2 more higher end projectors arriving today. I was looking at downloading some of the Atmosfear scenes for my upgraded projectors. I noticed the downloaded versions were more...
  7. AtmosFX Projector

    General Halloween
    Hey all! Just wondering how you guys plan on running audio from the projectors? Too damn bad they aren't Bluetooth compatible....
  8. Atmosphere Effects: ATMOSFX names me "Freak of the week!"

    Halloween Props
    Hey guys, I have been using Atmos DVDs for years. Far before they started distributing in Home Depot. My setup utilizes nine projectors. It was an honor to be featured on their site this week. New this year for me is a fog screen and talking skull. Can't wait...
  9. Electronic/Software: It is all your fault!

    Halloween Props
    Dang it! I just HAD to come find Halloween Forum. I just HAD to look in the props sub-forum. I just HAD to read about the AtmosFEAR digital video products. Now, thanks entirely to YOU, I have four, FOUR new Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 2045 digital projectors and two, TWO QUMI ViviTek HD...
  10. Atmosphere Effects: Video Projector Database...type...thing.

    Halloween Props
    Hey all! I know we get a ton of people - both long time members and new recruits, asking what the best projector is to buy for haunt projections. I think a lot of people likely want to be able to walk into a store and hand the clerk a model number, rather than doing a ton of research. So I was...
  11. Electronic/Software: multiple projectors displaying different ghosts

    Halloween Props
    i am looking at maybe setting up multiple projectors displaying different ghosts at different times. is there a way that i can tie all the projectors into one computer and then program the projectors to show one ghost at a time for a few seconds, then maybe 10-15 seconds later have another...
  12. Electronic/Software: UK Projector: Please recommend features and/or units that are available in UK

    Halloween Props
    Hi, I’m based in the UK, and as you know we don’t have the choice of Halloween stuff that is available across the pond in the USA. I’m looking to upgrade my Halloween display by the use of projectors. I have no projector at the moment but I would like the projectors to be as multipurpose as...
  13. Lighting: Weather proof LED based video projectors other than Ultra Projector?

    Halloween Props
    Are there any other inexpensive ($200 or less) weatherproof video projectors on the market besides the Ultra Projector? Would like to project onto an outside wall of my house without worrying about the rain.
  14. Lighting: Good inexpensive media player that will auto-play video loop upon power on?

    Halloween Props
    Can anyone recommend a good inexpensive ($50 or less) media player that will auto-play a video loop upon powering up? I'd like to rear project onto a window, having a projector and media player power up each evening on a timer or dusk-to-dawn sensor. Also looking for inexpensive ($100) LED...

    Halloween Props
    I'm looking for an Epson projector model number 1705 as this unit has a usb slot so I could put a,flash drive in it. I see them on eBay starting at $75. I used the atmosfearfx digital projector which was more than fine for my window Hollusion for Halloween but now looking for a bit more...
  16. Atmosphere Effects: Projector

    Halloween Props
    I got dizzy over the years reading projector posts but have decided to take the leap and give it a try. Can someone give me a specific projector recommendation (brand/model) to try atmospherefx on? Cost is not as important as having a projector I will be happy with but I would prefer to keep the...

    Halloween Props
    Any ideas on hiding out door projectors?
  18. Atmosphere Effects: Question about projection mapping, hookups, and HeavyM software

    Halloween Props
    I just got a copy of HeavyM, and have been tinkering with it. So far it's about the closest thing I can find to Façade Signage in terms of easy to use. (In my opinion Façade Signage is probably the coolest software I've ever seen, but waaaaay too expensive for the average person.) I also just...
  19. Other: Fog machines and their outputs, video, etc

    Halloween Props
    Hi all, I often read posts where people are looking for fog machines, their output capabilities, fog juice used, costs, etc. I was thinking if possible a new thread (with a better name than this one) could be used for those of us willing to post some video of specific fog machines, settings...
