I am havin a problem with my enegery ball . Whe I use The great enegery ball it's way too big , some of the others as well . I can use the scale to make it smaller but it seems like it distorts it . Some of the other ones , using the scale doesn't even get them small enough .
Any suggestions ?

After adjusting the scale down, you'll probably need to adjust the size of the gleam affect as well, to get it smaller. At least on the Great Energy Ball.

Click "Gleam" on the timeline, below the name of the effect, and use the controls in the Inspector to adjust it to your liking. I don't recall exactly what the names on the controls are, but it should be pretty easly to figure out.

Thanks for the help . btw , is there a preset for the energy ball used in the video demo for effects lab pro on this site ? The blue one held by a hooded girl . I love the look of it .
Thanks again for the help .

Ok , I am able to get it small enough to fit film but it destroys it . It makes all the gleam , i think , come out from the top instead of from all around like when it's full size . Looks more like an electric fountian than an energy ball . If I leave it alone it emits from all sides , thus looking sphere like as a ball should but when made small it just emits upwards only . I have played with the brightness , levls, fallout amd acc settings in gleam but nothing . Problems when I use the scale to make it smaller as to fit film .
Any ideas ?

Perhaps you need to adjust the origin point of the gleam, after scaling and moving it, it might have lost its positioning.
