Since you've asked what's the best way to do it, I'll say this one...
http://www.horsefish.net/ElementalFX/

Otherwise, try to search the forum for the particle effect... There were several decent threads regarding that...

If you still need help, you might want to try this:

Create a shapetween of some shape growing to a bigger shape [the shape has to have an _alpha, let's say 20.
Then duplicate the layer and let the shapetween on the duplicated layer begin one or 2 [3 if you want to ] frames later.
Do this untill you've got 5 layers or more/less if you want to.
This looks a bit like the "softenfilledges"-thing you can do with shapes, but this one's in a dynamic invironment....

Experiment with it, I don't know you'll find it helpfull, but I'm afraid the only way to find it is trying....I used it when I was making a sore on an arm [it's my idea, whiehoo! :P don't know if anyone ever did it before though]....

Good luck - Ruben

PS. I'm 16 which is pretty young as well, I started out when I was 14. We're the future, right?

PS2. IOWA rules! Slipknot are from DesMoines!

Huh? Of course Slipknot are from DesMoines, check this site if you're interested, it's the best fansite I've seen since I started listening to the music...

But err....have you solved your problem??

Well, suit yourself. I'd be flashing if I were you. In fact, that's what I'm doing right now :P....

Anyways, good luck with it....See you on the ASForums... - Ruben
