Just purchased EffectsPro after viewing Comet Tail in "particles' section on the web demonstration...but can't find the effect in the software...

I'm looking for a meteorite crash to earth effect.

Does this only come around every million years to the software ? and i have to be there to use it ?

Hahahaha.

The Comet Tail is a simple enough particle effect. If it doesn't currently exist as a preset then nothing's stopping you from adjusting the settings to how you need them yourself.

If you have the time, have a look at the particles video tutorial as well as the manual. Particle effects are much simpler to understand once you have your foundations and I am sure you could work it out.

Good Luck!
