Star Trek transporter effect

The most recent posting I could find on this effect was last November. I'm looking for some help on this, and was curious how to do it with the latest FxHome products. Which products/features make this easiest to do? Have read all the earlier postings, so repliers need not elaborate on filming techniques, but could use help on adding the "sparkly" materialization effect, as well as tips on doing this with iMovie (is it up to the task?)
Repliers to earlier posts were still referring to a "transporter" plug-in that was part of an older version called AlamDV. Can't find any reference to plug-ins by this name in the new stuff, but it sounds like a potential time-saver. Any info here?
Thanks in advance.

The old plug-ins are still available, and can be used in the new programs as stock footage. Here is the old plug-ins section
, and here is a tutorial on using the stock footage.
There are 3 transporter plug-ins in the Star Trek section, here
, and here

You could also create the sparkly effect with the particle engine in EffectsLab.

That is a very clever idea, BackOfTheHearse. I've been playing around with it and it seems to work pretty good. I was planning on submitting it as a preset eventually, but I thought I would check to see if you had one in the works, as I don't want to steal your thunder.

The de-res ppreset is up, with a bit or patticle sparklies and perhaps some light thrown in for good measure, it should work spiffingly. I hope.
