Hey, I'm not very good with the EffectsLab Pro particle engine, so I'd like to request a spark preset for when a person gets hit with a laser. You know, just a short burst of white/yellow sparks.
If anyone knows how to do that, it'd be awesome if they could make it! Thanks!

I found one that could be used for some things, but, I don't know, it's not quite as customizable as a particle effect or something. Until someone makes one, I could probably survive on the one I found....smile Thanks!

I know after effects has a particle playground thing that can simulate this real well but elab would take a long time! might i suggest making it with a particle effect and then perhaps blur it? it may not look to great but it's a start!

Dont think it would be that difficult. I'll give it a look if I get a chance, but I'm pretty busy right now.

Ok, that'd be great! I'll keep an eye out for it on the presets page.
