Please help with shots.

wow. i have been working on this for MONTHS, and with work i totally lost track of it. however i’m back to a point where i want to continues working on my animation.

i need help, rather a tut or something that explains how to make shots (bullets fired) and laser beams in blender.

here is my animation so far.

clip is xvid


I’d work on the background first :stuck_out_tongue:

background is a minimal concern.

i’d rather work on the finer details and get the big stuff settled later since that’s really simple.

i could use after effects to get the result i need, but i want this project to be totally opensource.
