I'm hoping someone might be willing to create a laser like beam for this animation of the Nomad space probe from Star Trek the Original Series attacking a planet. An explosion would be great too.

I've spent quite a bit of time with the current presets available and am just not happy with them, as far as lasers go. I guess I could create a laser preset of my own, but frankly, I'm not interested in that part of EffectsLabPro.

Thanks for considering it.

Realistic explosions are hard to create with a particle engine, stock footage is better. Check out the old AlamDV-plugins wich can be imported as image streams, or perhaps Detonation Films free footage.

Laser on the other hand could be created with the neon light engine I guess. Maybe someone can make a preset, I can't right now. Maybe I will play around with it later. smile

I have created 2 laser bolt presets (green and red) which will hopefully be up soon.
