Ice Blast Superhero Effect Help

I’m new to BCC and am trying to do a temp effect of a superhero doing an ice blast like seen in this concept art: https://giantbomb1.cbsistatic.com/uploads/original/1/10831/770886-iceman_1280x1024.jpg

I’ve been playing around with BCC Particle Emitter 3D but can’t seem to find to the right thing. Any suggestions on how to achieve this look with BCC? Again, this is a temp effect so it doesn’t need to be perfect but should have this general feel. I’m working in Media Composer.

Try using Particle Illusion instead of Particle Emitter 3D. Then in the PI interface use the emitter search to look for “ACT_” – there are a couple of energy beam type emitters that could be just what you want. The color will need to be adjusted and angle, but it’s a start.

If searching for “ACT_” doesn’t show any results, click the help menu in the PI interface and “Download Emitters” to get the rest of the libraries.
