    Ghostbusters proton pack

    Im wondering how I would go about to make the proton beam that the proton pack fires and make it move like it does in the Ghostbusters movies?

    You could try a bone chain with multiple IK goals. And then put a repeating motion that oscillates on the IK goals.

    The trailer plugin from dstorm could be useful.
