My idea for my final project is to build a moving light that is controllable by encoders like on a light board. I will use stepper motors to control pan and tilt on the light. My project is combined with Mike’s LED multicolored light to create a color-changing LED moving light. This interests me because I am studying lighting and hope to become a lighting designer. Moving lights are a big part of lighting.
This would use 2 stepper motors, one for pan and one for tilt. Each would be controlled by its own potentiometer.
