How do you make this type of animated laser rays effect?

How could you make these laser light rays, and also animate them to move from the horizon line forward in after effects? It's kind of remeniscant of a matrix effect but it's not code, it's lasers. I'm not really sure exactly what to call it but here's a photo example...

How could you create that in After Effects (but without that website logo stuff)?

You could probably accomplish this manually in after effects by using the stroke effect or masking lots of solid layers. That's the only way i can think of without using any plugins o_o good luck

You use the fireworks effect (sorry i forgot name but it produces sparks/fireworks) then you change the birth and death colour and size to however you want. You also need to change the shape to a line shape Now change your output sparks or something like that to either horizon or vertical. Now all that is left is the glow effect and the horizon which could be made with a solid and some glow effects and possibly some curves

Instead masking allot of layers why couldnt u just use particleworld effect. There are settings which you can change to make this effect

I think by setting turbulance fields annd things like wind to 0, the particles will travel in a straight line.
