Hi! Does anyone know if there are spotlights which you can still see the picture through (or edit it to be able to see the pic.) I've searched but haven't come up with anything I liked.

You didn't mention which app you're looking to use this in. If it's PowerDirector, there are several FX that you might have, depending on the version and level of PD. Go to the FX room (F4) and type spot and you should see at least one Spotlight effect.

Yes, I'm refering to power directer, but I'm looking for a particle.

Hmm, I'm not sure how a particle would work. The BorisFX BCC Spotlight is the most likely way to go as you can use keyframes to sweep it over your content.

I want a something like the particle in the image 0084 with a few more lights, but with the type of lights from image 0085. I just wanted to know if something like that even exists, or someone would like to create for me.

OK. I see what you're looking for.

If you already have those particles installed, you can place one on the timeline and double-click on it to open the Particle Designer. From there you can change the number of lights and how they move and pulse. This tutorial may help.

I see what you're saying. I want to know if
there's any way to make the particle in image 0085 transparent.

No, which is why I showed you the spotlight FX. They overlay your video and are transparent, and you can use more than one to get multiple spotlights.
