@Tower of Terror Theater Will the stars twinkle or do tricks like shooting stars?
@Tower of Terror TheaterThe LED "stars" are DMX controllable, but the existing twinkle programs that are preprogrammed did not look realistic to me. The static patterns looked more realistic. My technical/creative partner has a friend who is more experienced with DMX control and he will come take a look to see if he can get a more realistic twinkling of the stars; if not I am satisfied with a static pattern.
As far as the "holographic," display I really had tried so many things and invested in multiple things (UHD short throw projector, standard throw projector, multiple holographic films) only some of which were returnable, that I decided to JUST STOP and make a choice and go with the peppers ghost approach which clutters the theater, but gives an acceptable , in my humble opinion, result.
You describe exactly what I am hoping to have the stars appear on the LED cloth. I will post what it looks like once the photomural is up and perhaps I can get the stars to appear as you describe with some DMX programming help.@Tower of Terror Theater
Further to your stars; perhaps I shouldn't have said twinkle, I wan't envisioning any of the blatant on / off patterns.
I meant something far more subtle with each star twinkling, varying in intensity without obviously turning on and off; each star twinkling to its own drummer, not obviously matching, or in synch' with, any other stars: The kind of gentle, not particularly attention taking, variations you'd often see on a clear, cloudless, night lying on the dock at your summer cottage staring up at the night sky.
