I'm working on a recreation (image) of the battle on Hoth from the fifth Star Wars movie and so far so good. I'm having trouble with getting the right texture / effect on laser fire. Is there anyone that can offer me pointers? I'm using Vue 5 Infinite btw.

Have you crossed a couple of rectangular planes and added a transmap? That is usually the easiest way.

No, I haven't thought of that, actually. I'm still kind of new to Vue and the last time I was seriously into rendering, I was using POVRAY/MoRAY on a 486dx :)

I'll go google for a good Vue transmap tutorial. Thanks for the hint!
