    How to create this special effect - Rocket Exhaust

    Hello All;
    I am not new to Lightwave but havn't used it a lot yet (Mostly my summer students use it). I am trying to create a special effect of a rocket exhaust for a real-time, interactive simulation. An example of what I am trying to produce can be seen in this video ...

    Take a close look at the rocket exhaust with the White rings moving down the blue cone of the flame. What is the best way to do this special effect in LW 7.5/8 (I have 7.5 at work, and 8 at home soon to be 9 at both places) ?

    Thanks much.

    Thanks for the tip, pdrake;
    I did have a thought that it was as simple as that but I was expecting a more complex solution. Now, I can defiitely see how geometry and textures could be used to create this animation. I'm anxious to get working on this today. Thanks.
