Anyone know of a tutorial on how to make lasers?

do you want to make a solid beam or laser blasts like in Star Wars?

P.S. judging from your user name I'm guessing it's probably the latter :)

You just want a tutorial? Try "Dave Jerrard"(!) instead. :)

Dave's tutorials are great. As with most things, there are many ways to accomplish the same result. Here is a scene file and some animations of laser fire using particles and sprites.
Hope it helps,

Hi,

for your solid cutting type laser, there is a good one on Dan Albans " lightwave 6.5 Magic" book. I used it a long time ago to make this laser cutting out letters.
