Can anybody out there make a different type of preset or stock footage for a force field.

Something similiar to Dragon Ball Z or like Magneto's force field from the old X-Men cartoons!

A preset might be better because if I'm right you can change the color and such as appose to stock footage where it's just the way it is.

Something loopable it doesn't have to reappear or dissapear just be there reflecting.

Hope someone can help out and HUGE THANKS!!!!!!!!

Sorry just frustrated.

It's hard to learn this stuff even if you do read the manual it helps but there are some effects I just can't seem to make happen.

Personnally i made mine my self. I don't know if it can be done in fxhome product but here is my trick (AE or Combustion):

1- Put one or two lights flares on stage. Ajust the color to match your shield color.
2- Put a distrod efect on it and animate it over time.
Tadam! The rest come in compositin or with a 3D program using this as texture to make strange shape.

Too see the result look at "still hunting" on my web site (www.imaginethisproductions.net). In our irst movie i asked someone to apply the fxhome force field effect on it but afther that i made them myself.
