Ok, this is a request for the experts. I'm in dire need of a swirling souls plug-in (i.e. translucent ghosts or spirits zig-zagging about) ala Raiders of the Lost Ark, and was hoping that someone could do it. biggrin

Billy3D, perhaps you could try using Illusion to do it smile

Thanks in advance, buds! cool

I don't think they've ever stopped making over here. They change casts and concept every couple years, I think, but it's been going for ten years or so now.

Thanks for giving it a go, Billy3D smile I've seen those before, though - they're part of Dave's selection of Illusion emitters. Was hoping for something spookier biggrin

Speaking of which, I managed to get quite a spooky effect by simply downloading a fake ghost picture, adding an alpha channel, and converting it into a plug-in. I think I'll upload that soon, so that some of ya will be able to do your own spooky scenes.
