Looking to add 2 lights to pan the que line area to replicate a prison searchlight.
Anyone build something similar? Almost like a Pepper Ghost effect for a light.
Other option is just a rotating led light on a dmx controller.
Any suggestions or ideas???
Just off the top of my head, I might try utilizing the thin metal clamp lights used in shops rotating them 180 degrees (or so) back and forth on a vent type motor (can we still source those anywhere?). They worked flawlessly for me in countless projects...
Not sure this is better than what's posted but it's different and might fit as a solution based on what equipment you (or someone else reading this thread) might have:
You could Project a video of searchlights sweeping back & forth. Would basically be black background and 2 white circles moving back & forth. Would only over the range of the projector. I'm working on a similar idea for projection mapping on my house.
