There may already be a plug-in like this that I've missed in searching the site, but... I want to add shafts of light like that coming from a flashlight in a dark foggy room, or shooting down to the floor from the sun thru a big window. I thought of using the light saber plug-in, but there's no transparency slider. Need to actually see through the light.

I'll give it a shot. I've got the Shine program, but sometimes that looks a little too stagey for me.

Thanks again! That might just be the ticket. We're making a werewolf feature with Spanish horror star Paul Naschy in two weeks and I'm laying in as many Alamdv effects as I can!

Very definately. The kind of effects I want the most are subtle lighting stuff that no one really notices. A good example is placing a flaming torch indoors where it might otherwise be very dangerous to have an open flame. The idea is that people don't notice it or think about it when they see it. They just accept it -- if you're lucky.
