Has anyone attempted to make a animation of a welding torch raining down sparks and what not?

First attempt. These are streak particles whose color goes from white to orange to black over one second.

 

the emitter rate is animated in the chor to make it go on and off

They need some glow to look brighter. I'm not sure if streaks can "glow"

Robert, what material did you use to create the streaks?

 

brace yourself... it's called... sparks! You can try this but I just whipped it up from scratch and I find that you have to customize particle effects for each new situation.
