    Default Fun with bounce mirrors

    its 2 AM. been workin on this RGB for WAAAY too long.

    Dont think i should actually do anymore...ahem..."Work..."

    Hmmmm....


    set up bounce mirrors all over the place and pull a "Real Genius" (Classic Movie!) beam matrix.

    looked kinda cool, so took some pix. although couldnt get a lot of the reflections cuz of size of where it was all reflecting.

    Real Genius is a classic!

    And you know.... sometimes you do have to put down the tools and play around.

    There was a mirror ball on the sofa and 8 bounce mirrors balanced around the room. SO very rough and ready
    I set Live Pro to fire different coloured beams at the mirror ball and set the chase real fast which I guess gave the appearance of a grating... The laser is only doing a about a watt...

    That's the only problem with this forum... Other peoples ideas inspire me to go out spending money that I haven't got...
