Laser shows are a familiar game opening effect for many sporting events. You can easily create a heart-pounding laser show that is bound to get the crowd full of excitement. There are multiple different effects that can be used in a laser show such as laser beam shows, aerial effects, laser mapping, text, and 3D animations and more.

A great effect that is used to enhance, or highlight an area or object (such as a football field, or basketball court) is laser mapping. You'd start by tracing out an area that you would want to highlight, then from there, you can combine the mapped out area with other effects to create a full-fledged laser show, or create other effects around the mapped out area or object.
