    Default Magical swirling sparkling effect?

    I have no idea how else to explain what I am looking for, but can this be done with one of the standard effects? Looking for an effect that looks something like a fairy flying around. Like a swirling comet with sparkling trails I guess? Thanks for any help!

    In xLights, you can do a Spiral effect and add Sparkles to the color(s) you pick. Choose how far around you need to go (# of wraps), and the time you want it to run, and voila! My daughter did something just like that in her Let It Go sequence and it looks much like what you are looking for.

    Or use the effect assistant to map out the swatch the effect will occupy on the prop then apply a morph to it and layer strobes on it.

    Thanks for the suggestions! I got it to my liking by using a "liquid" effect. Check it out at 2:14 and 2:47.

    Yeah, I was going to suggest the seme thing and fiddle with the sliders until you got the exact look you were looking for.

    Love that effect... What is the raining down after each of the tree "explosions"? Spiral to the top, explode the tree/star, rain down twinkle... Love it!

    Hey I know I'm resurrecting an old thread here but I absolutely love this effect!! I've been messing with the liquid effect settings and can't even get anything close to this. Would you mind sharing your effect settings in that part of the sequence if you still have it?

    Thanks,
