nice, but the blade doesn’t look too… straight. what are you using to make it? also, the blade is too short.

Thank you suggestions.

the blade…particles.
the blur of blade…mesh and armatures(and empties).

too straight? mmm…did you say about the blur object?

Thank you. I’ll fix it. :slight_smile:

might i make a suggestion? the method several (including me) people have used to make lightsabers is this. make a plane. delete the left side’s vertices (so that only one vertical line, 2 vertices is left.) now, subdivide it several times. give it a halo material with a blend texture. this makes a quite nice blade after tweaking. this is not the FULL way to make it, so maybe do a search for “lightsaber colorband” or something, to find the guys tut on colorbands and lightsabers.

Oops! It’s mistake. the blade is used Halo. not particles.
Thank you advise.:slight_smile:
