Guys I need help making the energy beams used in dbz series. I liked this one(http://fxhome.com/presets/view/1899/shoop-da-woop-laser) but it's way too short, if it was longer like 5 or 6 seconds it would be great, but im tryiong to get the dbz fx,

thanks

Druguer


ps: if ANyone knows where to find the sound fx, or mocap files let me know)

All that shoop da woop whatever.. looks like a giant lightsaber with feather added. Surely you could make that yourself in like 10 minutes, if your having trouble, this is what you can do to create a pretty good shoop da woop whatever you want...

1. Start with the 4 point neon light.
2. Add Feather
3. Curve out the edges

That's seriously basically it. I can go into further depth if you want. But, I just watched a trailer on the DBZ thing you were talking about. Doesn't the effect start of kind of with a ball of energy? Maybe add an optic? Then have the shoop da woop(tell me what this is called...) extruding from that energy source.

Hope this helps..

EDIT: Ah sorry bought that. I forgot to read the earlier posts. Turns out you got the preset and made the effect duration longer, my mistake.
