I appreciate all of the comments on the Creative Cow forum about Sapphire. After reading all of the questions, I have one of my own.
I am a new user to Sapphire and would like to create an effect that I saw on the Demoreel07 movie.
The effect is at approximately 00:01:16 in the movie. The brightest light(s) in the scene have an orange/red glow and a streaked trail that follows the action of the bright light as the person swings their arm. It looks like a hotspot orange glow, with decaying trail that was perhaps auto-tracked? Anyway, I have a client who would like it in a production. Can someone please explain the creation process to me in detail, I would greatly appreciate it.
