Video for Halloween Projection

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys, anyone have a good scary halloween projection video they can share?  I am thinking of having this outside in the field.... not sure how it will go, but if it doesn't work outside I will do the window again.

I would love to add projection to my LOR system but I can't figure it out. I have projection in my show but I have to turn the projector on and pick the video and then play it on a loop. How do you get the system to turn on and off the projector without screwing it up?

Being new to LOR and all are you wanting to share videos of your ghosts so I can play/ project from my projector onto my home.

All I have now is my 4 singing pumpkins and this would add another show on my home.

If you are offering such a file I will def like a copy.

Seems easy enough to incorporate it with one arm down due to surgery.

Being new myself I am just going use my remote to start as needed.

The past few years I have done a scary theme and I have never had 1 trick or treater make it to my door.

This year I am using my LOR and singing pumpkin faces to get more traffic and I will start the projected scenes once the parents let the little ones go. (Scary for parents only)

Hello Haunter

Welcome to the forum ( and your new addiction). Those files you downloaded will not play in LOR, that type of MP4 that will only play the audio. A simple conversion to something like .wmv will do the trick. Then you will add that video to a sequence EXACTLY as you would add music to a sequence.

On a sepreate topic, I figured out how to get my Fog Machine hooked up to the LOR.  Super excited about that.  Just a cheap assed Walmart one.

How did you do it?  My family wants me to add one to our display.

I purchased a Relay, took the case off the machine and un-hooked the Pressel Switch.  I wired the Pressel switch to the Relay, then hooked a 24 AC plug (common as hell) to the Relay.  Now via LOR I turn on and off the fog.  Giving it time to rego and I don't have to press the button (or more over convince my wife to as I often go with the kids, meaning she never does).  The pressel switch wires don't have to be hooked up in any particular order, nor does the 2 wires for the 24AC plug.

I would start simply by getting a relay, and I would buy the BASE for it too.  Above is the photo of the BASE (which I have wired too) and the Relay I plug into the base when wired up.

 

Then in LOR, I have 1.20 min to charge, 20 seconds power on 1.20min power off to charge 20 seconds on.  Works awesome.  I will now buy a few cheap Foggers after Halloween for next year.

James, I get that but I can't seem to get around the projector turning off and then when it comes back on it's back on the main menu and not back on the video that I want to have running. I just can't seem to figure it out.

I figured that out due to the complexity of my old setup.

I used to do a very scary theme with all sorts of props. I set my Grimm reaper out for the entire month and on Halloween night I replace it with me. Kids get used to seeing it but the eyes move and I move my head very slow so they always say "it's just a prop" until they poke at me! 

I even had someone (criminal) try to steal "me", dummy got the bejesus scared out of him. 

 I have never had any children make it to my candy LOL I didn't have time to sit with the controller so had to figure it out.

Now I have 2 lil boys 4&6 so I'm more user friendly. Add in the fact I just had surgery on my arm so this year all they are getting is singing pumpkin faces and the projector screen. 

Im putting a glow in the dark skeleton morph suit and gonna try to blend in with some of the dancing skeleton scenes.

Im just hoping nobody grans my arm LOL

I'm thinking but may be wrong that James has a different projector than some of us.

My infocus is programmable but for the price of the ones at Home Depot I ran out and got one

That is awesome.  I love doing scary... I get 50% of our kids due to dogs barking, (I don't have dogs) wolves, screams, lights, lightning etc.
