Water Effect - Please Help

Hi! I need some help recreating an effect from Charmed. Here's an example: http://img305.imageshack.us/img305/2971/aquakinesis9yh.gif. What I'm trying to achieve is the water 'tube', not the ball (although that would be great too). Can anybody point me to an emitter like that or help me make one?

Thanks in advance,
Matt

I got a similar effect with the Transport 12 emitter from the February 2004 library.

If you reduce its Visibility, and then animate the size of the area emitter so that it grows tall over the course of a few frames, you can get the effect of the tube growing. You can also animate the number graph so that it starts out really high, maybe 2000%, and then goes back to 100% after a second or two. That will give you a much brighter glow as the ball impacts the person and the tube starts growing.

Thank you sooo much! It looks great. I'm now working on the actual 'water ball'. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks again.
