Hello good people. I’m currently in post-production editing for a trailer we’ve filmed – hoping to use the trailer to raise finance to make the feature – and need some help/advice for an effect.
One of our leads is a security guard with a fetish for 'Soldier of Fortune.’ In the trailer we see him open a package that contains a tazer. The prop – made of wood – obviously doesn’t have that arc of lightening when operated, and that’s what I need to add to my footage.
Long story short, I have FX Home (and Elements 3.0) which will let me add laser beams, particle effects etc, but no lightening. Is there a cheap SFX package that someone could recommend, or is there a willing soul out there that I could mail the raw footage to and they add the lightening arcs across the tazer probes for me?
Thanks in advance.
