    Imaging Lingo or Xtra to produce Faux Volumetric Light?

    Applied CD Level 1
      Has anyone seen an xtra or know of some imaging lingo code that will produce a 2D version of volumetric light on either graphic or text sprites? This is the effect you see on TV almost every day, particularly with text, where light shines from a point source behind the text and casts rays in front of the object. Traditionally it’s a 3D effect (although not supported by Director’s 3D methods), however, Adobe Premiere has some plug-ins that do an effective 2D fake, I was wondering if there was something out there for Director.
