For who wants the saber to be on :


Rendered in FPrime (20 refinements, radiosity)

Blade was rendered twice. (one in scene and the second alone for postwork in photoshop)

The scene setup is not very spectacular but the idea is the glowing blade.

Thank you for viewing.

Looks great! I assume you saw mine (link below, ignited pics all the way at the bottom) at some point? I really like the surrounding glow on yours. I assume that was done in photoshop? I don't use PS much, certainly not in conjunction with LightWave. My knowledge of it sucks. :o

Surely that boxy bit on the handle would make it very awkward to hold?

Nice render though...

Thanks !

Yes it's done in PS:

I made a render of the blade alone with black backdrop. Copy it in two layers, played with Blur, Hue and then mix them with the original render (With Screen option)

Note that the initial blade render diffuse is 0 and luminosity is 175% with slight green color to allow reflection and light bounces on the table. (But i guess the light reflections would be more strong is real life)

I saw you saber and it is accurated, i like the hdri reflection and the moods of your picture. Really Cool !

Do you have any other LightSaber model ?

I really want to, but I've been so busy lately I've barely been able to touch LightWave. Really sucks. :(
