I feel like I'm posting too much but I really need help. I need sparks just like those done in the killer bean to show the gunshot. So I create a new material, change it to a streak emitter, change the color to yellow. Then I drag the effect onto a model, the model is in the shape of a cone and the cone has been made 100% transparent. Now what? Nothing shows up when I render the model as an action.

Have you checked your rates of emmission, intial velocity, etc?
Have you turned on render particles and hair under your render options?

I can't believe I didn't turn sparks and hair on. Of course, now I have a steady shower of a ton of streaks all going downwards. But I imagine I can tweak the settings to a few sparks the don't imeadiately fall to the ground.
