Hi Jeff,
Use a tiny triangle, apply to it "Flare" Straight" you could also use a pentagon or a square.
Use the depth to adjust the height.
Use the Edge Scale for the base.
You could also check the Manuel for "Primitives".
BTW,how did it work with the asteroide?
All the best
Serge

Ah the asteriod, that is for a personal project, which I haven't started yet, for I need more memory for the G4 cause its gonna be a big one (large poject size that is) its part of an idea I have for a demo reel, but I'll let you kno how it goes when I get started, I might need a bit more help with it any way, like how can I create a realistic starfield to loop, just like the original windows screensaver...?

Starfield is easy? I was thinking partilce playground colud do it with a little toying around? What do you think...and I'm looking for something less cheesy than square pixel for stars, but actually creating a nice smooth star in PSP and using it as the particle...What would you say to that...?

Hi again,
"I'm looking for something less cheesy than square pixel for stars,"

You can use Particle Playground in combination with other effects;
This rule is good for any effect actually.
To turn your "Square Particles" to wonderful stars you just need to apply a Blur Filter like "Gaussian" or "Directional" Blur.
Start with a very low parameter.
I would suggest you also to duplicate several layers with different kind of blur.
Using the Canon with a high "Barrel Radius", a small "Particle Radius" and a minimal "Gravity Force" this should give you good results.
My big tip: Add "Scatter" from "Stylize" at a very high level (200 or so) Uncheck the "REF" and you will love it.

BTW you could also think of trying a plug-in like "DE BERSERK"
It has a wonderful "Star Field" effect among others.
Let us know how it works and if you need more help.
All the best

Serge
