    Default Epilepsy safe lights

    So I'm going to be DJing a church dance, and apparently some of the people there might have epilepsy. I'm not too in the know with what actually triggers epilepsy besides strobes, so I was hoping someone in the know might be able to tell me which/any of these lights that I have runs the risk of triggering it?

    Chauvet Derby X
    Disco Ball (Might as well include a complete list)
    Chauvet MiN RGX 2.0 Laser
    American DJ Roto Balls

    Thanks!

    Sorry for the self bump, but after 6 days of zero responses, with only 10 views, I figured it was semi-acceptable.

    Nothing with flashing lights basically if you want to play it on the safe side. Just some floods and maybe some blacklights, but nothing blinking or moving.

    The flashes from the cameras at my graduation back when i was in highschool set a friend of mine into a seizure. Black lights and floods like Bassline said. Keep the lights to stationary ones.

    Mood uplighting is the best solution here. The last thing you want is to trigger a life threatening seizure so play it safe.
