    Can I adjust it at all?

    Absolutely. Once it's loaded into your Styles pallette, you can adjust it to your heart's content, just like other Styles.

    And I highly suggest adjusting the Range a bit.

    For more on how I use the lightsaber Styles (which were created using a method derived from a tutorial by [link=http://www.3d-cc.com/quagnon/tutorial/sabre.htm]QUAGNON[/link]), go here:

    Thanks, Rookie1093@yahoo.com (e-mail)

    Well, i used [link=http://newgrounds.com/portal/view/175167]This Tutorial[/link] on Newgrounds to teach me how to do sabers in flash... then after learning what i had learned in this tutorial. i pretty much used my common sense and applied the same thing to making sabers in photoshop. :D

    ROTS lightsabers are crappy, you can make much better looking ones through photoshop.

    Yes, I know i use photoshop, after effects to make lightsabers.... the problem is how did i make them rounder, it's hard to set the market exactly round the whole saber.... you know what i mean?

    this is the absolute best lightsaber tutorial i've ever come across. It's amazing for actual rotoscoping, too.

    Wow, that tut is a blast from the past. Does work for quite well for photoshop, however for rotoscoping after effects is a million times easier.
