"Render > video post" is apropiated.
the lens effects Flare is perfect to Photon Torpedos.
to make a Phasers laser ray, a long cilinder whit a material whit the same effect id in the lens effects glow must work.
The Energy Shield Effect is a bit more dificult, if you know max script you can make an automatic atenuation dirction and make to the axis direction of the ray coming from the enemy ship.
then the impact zone will be vicible.
the lens effects glow help to make a interesting effect.
BUT i don understan what is the warp effect ( and i am and star trek fan)
well luck whit you proyect.
