Maybe we'll add more blue. In any event this is pretty awesome to see, Maurice. Thanks!
I already tested that. We'll just have to adjust the blast color to look consistent regardless of the background, which is no big deal to do.

This image illustrates an issue that occurs when trying to add soft edged effects to footage, wherein the color of the background can affect the color of the effect. In this case, the weapon glows should be purplish, but because of the color of the background, the effects elements need to be tinted way into the blue in order to result in purple when composited. The actual effects elements are seen in the black box, and you can see how the apparent color changes when they are composited.
