Old thread with new question. Welcome to the chat.Howdy,
I use 2 pinspots to light each mirror ball in my venue. They're rigged on the same vertical plane aimed at the lower half of the balls from about 1.5 meters away. The question I have is why are the reflections a donut shape with pinspots as opposed to when I light them with my movers or a followspot when they are little dots?
Also, I am looking to replace them with LED pinspots - do you think there would be any reason not to do this? Or will this solve the problem?
P.s In addition to other's comments; I use my current pinspots (so old I have no idea of the brand) on dimmable circuits with paradime dimmers.
Exactly. You're essentially getting an image of the light source itself.
