    Funny you mention that - I have a "Madame Leota" (sort of) that I want to hack into as well - it's got a fair bit of movement as-is but I haven't peaked under her skirt quite yet to see how it's wired up. I had planned on doing "Grim Grinning Ghosts" and bought a half dozen foam heads for it but never got to the point of setting up the projector part... next year!

    I was pondering removing the head and projecting onto a wig form. If I get there from here I'll report back.

Thus far, I've read where one of you streams video outside of the synced show, and another uses the Vixen plugin for it.
    That would be very helpful! Also, categorize them by the basic nature of the video (ie, hi-res, low-res, simple bitmap animation, etc). Maybe also what level of hardware/software is needed for a certain playback frame rate, etc.

Most video editing software allows this and it's pretty easy to do.
    Excellent idea! In fact, that would also make a great way to annotate audio tracks (basically, a voice-based audio cue generator).

    Did you ever figure out the projection project you wanted. I am interested as well.

    I haven't just yet. I'm going to start looking for a projector in April after our 2nd human offspring arrives. This will definitely take some work to accomplish, but my wife and I are very excited about making next year's show...well...work. We didn't have much luck this year as we had some hardware glitches.
