You can almost do that already: display the 2D monitor on your projector screen. Getting a pretty output with this is just a matter of tuning the 2D monitor.

Yea, i was talking about using projectors as fixtures, where the image is projected through haze to get the beam fx, like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6RcoTwwvd4

i didn't mean to hijack, i misunderstood what the OP meant. Now i digress..

I was looking for something like that as well. I tried http://www.beamerlasershow.com/ for ios and it looks great on a projector. Unfortunately i didn't find any software that is controllable QLC+ via DMX.

too keep it simple, as QLC+ can already play videos would it be easy to implement it for images too?
my idea is similar to the link posted by 3rdPlanetRob: the video-projector can allow me to draw the distribution of the lighting, so I could prepare a set of images with the shape/colors needed and then just play them as I was controlling another fixture, without the necessity of editing several videos.
someone else could be interested in playing just logos or writings.
maybe this is too complicate right now but I wish I could control the brightness, as it's possible to fade the sound tracks.
best wishes 2016

I was just playing around a bit with my projector, you can get some amazing effects that are really similar to laser effects.

Here is another video that shows what can be done. The video uses a projector that' has average power, it's not necessary to have a super powerful projector, just some fog or better, haze. The person in the video explains how the software works and shows some effects, this would be amazing to be able to do. I don't mean to be a nag, sometimes i look around to see if any new software is available, come across some of the videos that show the effects off and get all excited.. The video mentioned sounds nice, i could never get it to work though, some people have i guess. :D
