Using spotlight as video projector - sharing solution

Hey there, just wanted to give back - maybe this was already shared but I didn’t see it. Basically I wanted to have a stock system for creating a video projector in UE. I separated my video into its red, green, and blue channels in After Effects and saved them out. Just use them as light function materials on three lights colored for each channel, overlayed. It works pretty well - depending on the size of your videos you might have some issues with them not syncing quite perfectly, but it’s pretty good. Sorry if it’s been posted before, wanted to share! One thing to note is that you probably don’t want the audio in the video, or if you do, only in one of them. I set up three separate triggers, one for each channel, to help them sync better.
