That can be accomplished with a 3D particle system, such as Trapcode's Particular plug-in.
You would have to use Particular's ability to use a light source's 3D motion path as as path for the particle emitter.
There certainly is a learning curve, but it's all in Particular's documentation.
That's just plain Trapcode Particular - star particle type, some particle rotation, a little turbulence and velocity, all with an emitter moving on a spiral path. Really simple, just try it.
Yup... Got somethimg similar ...Nice... I am trying to make an intro for my arcade cabinet... Again... You guys rock and etc.. :-) I will post a result for feedback... Thanx
In transcodes preview box, you can move around with your mouse while shift clicking, can you record that?
