Hi everyone - I'm new to the board and was hoping you may be able to give me pointers or suggestions for a graphic effect I've been trying to figure out.

It's part of the intro on this *wonderful* site http://punkyfish.com/main.php

I've figured out how to do all the image effects apart from the swirling coloured animations that fly around the models and leave a trail behind them.

Are they done in actionscript, or using a guidelayer, or are they done using a plugin ??

Any pointers as to how to understand this and re-create similar things would be wonderful

Thanx for any help/suggestions !!!
