Howdy.
Iím trying to create something similar to the attached file.
Itís from the new WOW cinematic. I didnít make it (obviously).

Iím thinking I can create something like it with a volumetric light procedural.
But after 8 or so hours with no luck I thought Iíd ask the experts here in the forum.

Any help would be much appreciated.
p.s. is this the right place to post this sort of thing?

I'm no expert, but it doesn't look like the sequence you posted actually uses volumetrics. If I were trying to duplicate that sequence, I'd do it in passes--using different shaders mapped onto expanding spheres--and composite them, using Radial Blur (or similar filters in Photoshop/AfterEffects) to get the "volumetric" effect.

Good luck.
