I am working on a project for school which I decided to make star wars themed. The problem is that the lightsaber will not show up in the render. I have tried everything, I pressed W and selected clear all restrict render. I have pressed alt H and ctrl alt H on the lightsaber. I checked for duplication, it was set to none. I looked in the outliner all the eyeballs are on and all the cameras are on. If anyone can figure out what is going on that would be extremely helpful. I have provided the file along with a screenshot of frame 162 in material view and in render.
The following files contain the blender file, textures, screenshot of frame 162, and the render of frame 162.
