I teach 4th grade, and each year my class writes and films an original movie. We share it with everyone the last week of school. It is an amazing and rewarding process. This year, we have a character that has magical powers. We'd like to have a character "shoot" an effect out of their fingers or hand. I've found gun muzzle flashes to purchase for a special effect. However, I'm really looking for something more like a lightning bolt or laser beam that a character could shoot out of their fingers. Any guidance would be extremely helpful. I'm using FCP X for the first time this year. I'm a recent Apple convert...Thanks! I've learned a lot from this forum.
