Need some help creating a mirror ball effect

Post by kittmaster » Sun Jun 23, 2013 2:04 am

Hello,

I was asked to come here from the freestyler forum. I'm trying to simulate a traditional mirror ball with two pins spots. I'm wondering if someone has ever done it, or could tell a way to try can do it myself. Even if the beam effects from an another spot couldn't work, I imagine there might be a way to turn on multiple beam sources from one center point and have it rotate? Not really sure how to proceed.

Can anyone provide some guidance?

Regards,
Chris

Hi Chris

This is not really possible. There are a few things you could try:
-Add several fixtures in a ball pointing in different directions and use a rotating gobo effect on a dotted gobo
-Experiment with the 'roller' channels which work with the latest EasyView (however I'm not sure the latest EasyView is compatible with Freestyler)
