    Hi Everyone,

    I need to order a custom ipro of a rainbow for Wizard of Oz. I tried finding a pic of a rainbow on google to use and can't find anything I think will work.

    The idea came from this pic:

    Can someone find or make a pic that will work for this? I've tried looking through probrobly a hundred google pages and can't find/don't know which ones will work for the effect.

    (If it matters I'm planning on Hanging it on the FOH Footrail. The instrument will be a S4 50deg)

    I appreciate your help.

    Joe

    Sorry, but I have to ask, a 50 degree? I mean I guess since the rainbow is soft on the edges it might work, but for something like that I would use the lowest beam angle possible (for more punch) and you can control the focus a lot better.

    Just something to think about.

    I have not done this.

    What about finding a round prism and making an actual rainbow by sending light through it. Mask the white light that you don't need.

    I will play around with a 50 degree and a 26 degree.....those are the only source fours the theater owns. As for the prism, I'd rather use an ipro, because the theater owns them and I think it would be cheaper.

    I would also invest in a donut. It certainly looks like a glass gobo to me.

    The funny part is I can copy and paste this image and send it to rosco and have it made as an Ipro for $30

    Yes but I bet the Apollo glass gobo woud give you a lot more punch and and better colors than your Ipro. Especially, if you are using it in a 50 degree lens.
