I'm able to get some par 64's, and i think they could be a cheap lighting solution for accents or bounce light, yet i'm worried that the diameter of the can (8 inch) will just leave me with an immense beam of light, which would be hard to control. Any advice on this would be great. Thanks!

It depends on what bulb you have. The bulbs range from very narrow to wide. You can get barn doors for them. They arent the easiest light to control.

They've been talked about in the forums. make a research and you'll find plenty of information. Don't know if you are aware that the bulbs come with different lens shapes so that the beam can be quite spotty or wide. They are called :

VNSP very narrow spot
NSP narrow spot
FL flood
WFL wide flood
VWFL very wide flood

And don't forget the 1200 watt VNSP as opposed to the 1 k VNSP. Typically called Firestarters.

Don't bother with barndoors on PAR64s; they look nice but don't do much.
