    Why does the beam have straight edges, and when it comes to the beam, it looks laggy I guess.

    Don't just put up a big, coloured rectangle and put lines through it. That isn't how you make objects fade out, or shrink, or ease out, whatever you want to call it.

    I suggest making every triangle of that rectangle (every piece separated by a line) it's own figure. ie. so you have 40 triangles there, separated from each other, and not 1 big rectangle with 40 lines through. Next, with the triangles, you move them away from where you first placed them. While they're moving away, you may either:
    • Make them shrink until they're gone.[/*:m:38xalx96]
    • Make them divide more and more until they're gone.[/*:m:38xalx96]
    • Fade them out by changing each their colours.[/*:m:38xalx96]
    • Put your stick figure (and background) on the layer above the triangles, and use the transparency lines stick to fade them out that way.[/*:m:38xalx96]

    There are many ways to fade out the 40 triangles you made.

    Well you kinda have right idea but the edges shouldn't show and maybe there would be more particles.

    well the run was okay back was stiff a bit,your beam needs alot of work especially with particles and fading but not bad for a first.

    The beam seemed lazy.
    A key to animating an effect is patience. It seemed rushed.
    Like everyone said, you don't just put white lines through a giant stick. There's more to it than that.
    There were no particles or any sort of disintegration whatsoever, and the way the remains of energy from the beam moved were really laggy.
    The ideas that Darky suggested can make it look 10 times better.

    I'm not saying it's bad; I do understand this is your first time animating an effect.
    Again, I do advise that you take what Darky said into consideration. It will help you improve.

    Keep practicing!
