A GOBO is a circular piece of glass (or metal) that allows you to project an image using the help of light. The acronym of the word Gobo is derived from Go Before Optics, which itself describes its physical position of the slide in the LED light projector. It is used as a guide or cap that sit in front of the light source. When light shines through it, it causes the light projection to create the custom shape shape. The custom shape of the GOBO can be a logo, pattern, illustration or a photograph. The resulting image can be created by the shadow or light portions of the design. If you want the GOBO projection to be show your desired image with a transparent background, the art should be set to black in the areas that should be transparent. This will block the light from being projected in that area, which will leave you with a transparent monogram image that can be rotated or be kept in still mode.
