Video editing is really fast and easy now. Have you tried using Cyberlink or similar to remove the background and make it transparent?

THIEF! 🤣

I use VideoPad video editor. It removes backgrounds and green screens in such almost faster than I can click the apply button on my new laptop. The only thing I've noticed about is that for some reason it gets really slow if I bring in a .mov from an iPhone, but convert that to mp4 and it zooms through it. I have an Android phone so no issues there. It's just my son-in-law and his stupid iPhone that gives me issues.

Tinkered with this last year, spend the money on a good projector.  My first test of my evil angel was ok but when I upgraded the projector it even scared me!

Do you have a vimeo or youtube channel where I can see your evil angel in action? I haven't hooked up the projector yet, so everything I'm doing is watching what it looks like on the PC and me grinning wildly imagining what it'll look like in October.

Nope, what I did was buy a $50 projector off of Amazon and took it outside.  It looked ok so I borrowed a high end unit from a local audio/visual store.  OMG what a difference!!

I have two really good projectors now. I keep thinking about a third. I get on this auction site and a month ago or so there was an AV type place going out of business and I bid on lot of 4 pretty good projectors, but I missed the final minutes of the bidding. Turned out it got to a lot more than I was willing to spend. I need to keep an eye out for a good deal.

Cool

Now that I've got the 2 p5 panels all wired up and working, yes I agree it is pretty darn cool. Many thanks to @k6ccc who patiently helped me through my struggles (patiently). The only issue is now I want more... MORE I TELL YOU!

Get the winch system. There are youtube videos or you can buy the kit from Christmaslightshow com. 

You can get some net lights if you do not have RGB (for your chimney) that's what I did in NY.

Thanks I guess I never thought of net light. DUH!!
