So I'm trying to have my X-Wing and Tie fighter exhausts light up like the ones below. Currently, they just look like this which isn't that nice. The material is just a red emission for the Tie fighter and a yellow emission for the X-Wing.
Anyone got any ideas on how to accomplish this effect, would it be something I would do later in After Effects. Also, how would I go about creating the laser beams like the ones in Image 1?, I was thinking of just using the saber plugin for After Effects but they never look that nice.
Thanks in Advance
