    very cool. That special effects stuff can add some real pizzaz to your presentation, as long as its used sparingly.

    What did you use to get the beams to show? Fog or haze, or Marlboro reds?

    Ha... no smoking in Illinois bars any longer (Good law IMO that allowed me to successfully quit smoking after 21 years.)

    We use a Hazer instead of a fogger... much easier on everyone. no billowing fog... just even haze throughout the room. Doesn't even need much....

    Here's a pic to show how our moving gobo lights look in the same environment... gotta have beams...

    Hazer is the way to go, most of the time when we try to use our fogger it sets off the smoke alarm.
    Unfortunately the Hazers seem to be a lot more expensive than Foggers.

    Looks very cool.

    I have some lasers as well, but no hazer. I'm a tad confused on what I need, I see hazers from 450 watts to 1200 watts, do you use a single large hazer, or a few smaller hazers?

    Just one hazer... I do not know how many watts it is. It's pretty heavy compared to our fogger... it was in the $450 price range if that helps narrow it down.
