  1. OBELISK build file!

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    So we've lost quite a few aggregate prop build sites in the last decade, and some projects that were mainstays of the home haunter are disappearing from the web, including one of the best foam tombstone obelisk builds most of us have come across. But it was rescued from obscurity by the...

  3. Electronic/Software: Anyone have the Skeleton Bedtime Story by Total Home FX?

    Halloween Props
    Does anyone have the Total Home FX Skeleton Bedtime Story? I can't find any preview of it longer than a few seconds. It looks like decent digital decoration, and I'm thinking of add it to my haunted portrait. However, my TV is in a vertical configuration, so it looks like it's a portrait, and...
  4. Atmosphere Effects: Stabilizing Project on it's side

    Halloween Props
    I had this problem last year, probably going to have it again. How does everyone keep your projector stable? I have two in the garage that need to go vertical and I have a hell of a time getting them to sit on their sides. The slightest movement will of course mess them up. I wish you could...
  5. Electronic/Software: Need Help Rotating/Resizing AtmosFX Videos for Vertical Windows

    Halloween Props
    So I have almost all of what AtmosFX offers for Halloween decorations, save for a few of the newer releases and all was well until we moved to our current home that has no double windows. The first year I got by with using what AtmosFX made available in vertical format, but then last year I...
  6. Atmosphere Effects: Any risks to having a projector on its side?

    Halloween Props
    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...
  7. Atmosphere Effects: ADVANCED TOPIC: AtmosFX Videos: From Horizontal frame to a vertical frame

    Halloween Props
    AtmosFX Digital Decorations: Going from a horizontal frame to a vertical frame. Does anyone know of any free software (or pay software) that can change the orientation of a video? To be clear, I'm NOT talking about going from landscape to portrait on a mobile phone. I'm talking about changing...
  8. Atmosphere Effects: Atmosfearfx horizontal vs vertical on projector

    Halloween Props
    I had downloaded one of the apparition clips yesterday and started with transferring the horizontal format onto my usb. We have a 4x 6 window so I figured that was what I needed but the picture just was too small and didn't look right and didn't really fill up the whole window. I then played...
  9. Pneumatic: Scissor hinge prop first attempt

    Halloween Props
    Hi all here are a few photos and a short video clip of a scissor hinge I made. I built it from1x1x1x1/8" aluminum U channel, and bolted it together with 1/4x20x3/4" bolts, flat washers and nylon locking nuts. Looking for some input as to mounting the cylinder , I noticed some people mount them...
