I'm trying to create lighting in using effectslab and I've tried to use preset, I must be missing something because things aren't working right. Can anyone assist me? I want the lighting to shoot out of the hands of a basketball player right after the ball is released from her hands.

I think you meant lightning not lighting? I have changed the title of your post to say Lightning.

Which preset are you trying to use?

The Realistic_lightning_bolt_pack2.fxpreset_pack. Having a hard time making it look like a single lightning bolt. Like the preset picture.

That preset requires the lightning engine in VisionLab, you can't use it in EffectsLab. Check the product icons listed beneath each preset to determine whether they are compatible with the specific software you have.

Erm......Does anyone remember that Elabe does not have a lightning generator. only Vision lab and Power Plug have lightning generators.
