    Hey, Claber - can you elaborate a little more?

    What type of effect is it you're trying to achieve?

    The effects are up to your own imagination. You position your projector first, and then you mount the mirrors around the room. The general idea is to send the beams criss-crossing around the room, but it's up to you to decide how to aim the mirrors.

    You'll want to target all the mirrors first, to make the adjustment process easier. (Make a frame using your laser show software that sends beams from the projector to each mirror.) Now you can adjust the mirror angle of each bounce mirror to create interesting patterns. (If you are careful, you may be able to bounce the beam off one mirror and hit one of the others.) It's easy to do this with all the beams on.

    Once you have the mirrors set in position, you will want to create a separate frame for each individual mirror. (That is, using your laser show software, make a frame that sends a single beam at just one mirror. Do this for each mirror you have.) Now you can step through the frames (make a looping animation that cycles through all 8 frames) and you'll have a dazzling display of beams.

    You can combine a few of the single-beam frames to have more beams and create more complex patterns. You can also use the "all beams" frame if you want. (Works best if it's just flashed on for a second; then go back to the animation that cycles through all 8 mirrors one at a time.)
