If a crystallise attack succeeds, the target gets encased in a crystal prison, or cage of some kind that stops them from moving, but does not stop them from attacking. The state lasts until the crystal is broken - AI's will typically attack the crystal if they can. Its also possible to escape by teleporting out, or being knocked back out of the crystal.
The Crystal Template field in FFX Control Centre points to the object template used for the crystal prison.
To make a crystal that looks like your favourite active defence, copy the ffx_crystalprison object in the templates tab. Then copy the effect_ffx_crystalprison effect in the Resources tab, and set it to point to your favourite active defence's core.nif - this will automatically play on the inviisble bounding box mesh of the template.
