does anyone know a good method/tutorial for making a laser in Maya? preferrably one that acts like light.

A Star Wars type laser?

Take a cyclinder, add a lambert and up the incandescence to something around 3 and render with FG.

No no, not a light saber! (slapping my head realizing why the lack of responses)

I want to make a light that is volumetric, in a thin line that I can then reflect and refract off of things. Basically as close to a real life laser (laser pointer) as possible.

sorry for the misunderstanding
