I am not very skilled at this, obviously, as I can tell it should be easy, but I can't figure out how to get it done. Does anyone know how to do this? What plugin/settings to be used? Thanks in advance!
For a simple effect, you could use the CC Particle Systems II effect on a solid layer.
Basic setup is in attached image, which should give a good starting point.
From there it’s a matter of colour, blur, glow and overlaying to taste.
