Ahhh.. the "RAILGUN" lazer effect

2 ways:

a. Group a PaintFX "lazer-beam" brushstroke to the tip of your gun, and animate the "min clip and max clip" attributes to make it look like it is firing at your target.

b. use a directional particle emitter with a HIGH rate and high DIRECTIONAL SPEED.
(there is a lazer beam tut in the docs for this, that explains more detail)

...ps, no fog needed in either case.

But they will BOTH work inside an environment fog and/or fluid fog scene as well


Good luck!

No problem!!

I also talk about a way to do this kind of "path curve" type of animation in our VIP section videos, so when you get the chance, you might want to check those out as well

...just fyi
