I'm thinking of doing a little overhaul of a beam weapon thats used by a MOD I'm using in my campaign. I want to create higher quality textures than the :V: ones. Nice multi-coloured ones. Anyone got a surefire way of making the textures? I just can't face sitting playing with gradients in psp....

I'd tell you the perfect tool for making beam textures, but then I'd have to kill you.

Those beams for Machina Terra?
