laser beam effect texture
google seems to be coming up empty on laser beam textures or tutorials anyone know of tutorials or pre mades available? I suppose I can just toss down a gradient red to white to red but i was hoping to make it look slightly nicer than that perhaps with the halo like effect seen in star wars.

RE: laser beam effect texture
Just throwing a couple of possibilities in the hat, all using paths.

1. is a straight forward stroke path with fuzzy brush and 50% brush opacity, followed by a repeat with brush size reduced and 100% opacity. Mabe adjust the colour a little for the second stroke.

2. is going a step further and using brush dynamics still the fuzzy brush. This will take a gradient, fg-bg whatever colours defined. Worth experimenting with different settings.

3. is RobA's path blend script and a pair of paths. This would enable a little bit of perspective if required. The fg-bg-fg gradient is homemade.
