How do I set up real pumpkins with Jack-O'-Lantern Jamboree?
Jack-O'-Lantern Jamboree is a very unique decoration. It's the only AtmosFX decoration designed with our special "Pumpkin Prop" mode, so that you can project onto your own pumpkins. You can even try projecting onto basketballs, fruits, mannequin heads, or any other surface. The decorations bring any objects to life with happy Jack-O'-Lantern faces.
How do I pick the right size pumpkins?
This all depends on your projector. Jack-O'-Lantern Jamboree can work with a large variety of pumpkin sizes - it all depends on your projector.
Different projectors create different sized images depending on where they are placed. Still, there's an easy way to test this out before you go out and buy some fresh pumpkins.
To begin, try estimating where you want to set up your pumpkins and projector. Turn on your projector and display your Pumpkin Prop mode decorations.
Next, take a large piece of cardboard, or any large, flat surface, and put it where you want to place your pumpkins. This will show you exactly how large your pumpkins will need to be. If you need, you can even draw circles on your cardboard to see about what size will work best.
How do I set up my pumpkins?
Now it's time to experiment with pumpkin and projector placement until you get it just right.
To start, position your projector so that the middle face in the projected image lines up with the center pumpkin, then place your other two pumpkins on either side of the center pumpkin, and line them up with the projected faces.
Once your props are in place, select one (or a few, or all!) of the Pumpkin Prop mode decorations and set your projector to loop! Your display will be ready to entertain trick-or-treaters all night.
