Hello all,

I have been searching the web for a while now trying to find a tutorial on how to create a spark effect in flash.  I am looking for something that is similar to what you would see in welding.  I want to take that and have it follow a guide line for a bit.  Now here is the problem I been working on this for about 20+ hours and can't get it.  Also like I said I can't find a tutorial.

Any help would be good.

You won't be able to solve it without programming. You would have to programm some kind of particle effect. Have alook at this sample

It's made for a fire effect, but if you change the size, color and speed of the particles you could get your effect. You would probably have to rewrite some of the code, but there you should have a starting point.
