For my movie Zelda: Din's Heir, the spell Nayru's Love conjures a bright white light form Link's palm, can anyone make a cool looking preset for this. For distance shots I'll use a 4 point laser and make it completely transparent. But I need a cool preset for the close shots.

Thanks in advance.

Have you tried the existing optics presets? Or adjusting one of them to suit the shot?

From your description it's hard to know what's needed. 'A bright white light' is a bit vague. smile Also, won't a completely transparent 4-point laser be....invisible?

Hmm, optics could work fine for this. Thanks for the advise, can't believe I didn't think of that.

2. and no the laser would still have a glow just no color.
