3ds max Laser Effects

Hi, i’m currently studying effects in 3ds max and i’d like to know, how laser was made in this cinematic. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DjtgxjrINgI.
You can see it from 0.59 - 1.05. Thanks.

Almost all of that stuff is done in post with a programme like After Effects. There are, however, effective methods of producing volumetric effects in 3ds and a relevant google search will definitely bring up some helpful tutorials.


As I am a 3ds max user, I would say that, well, yes, they mainly did it with After Effects.
you could try using a plug in called fume-fx (if you have it) but if you don’t, it cost 800 bucks (OUCH!)
