Continued: Step By Step Tutorial to making your Light Saber blade glow.
By Brent "BrentK7" Keltner

6.) Back in Video Post click on Add Image Filter Event ().

7.) In Add Image Filter Event chose "Lens Effects Glow" from the drop-down menu.  Then click Setup which (located right under the drop-down menu).


8.) In the "Lens Effects Glow" setup make sure only "Effects ID" is checked and it's value is 1 (1 being the number we assigned the Material Effects Channel back in step 2).  Click OK.


9.) Now back at Video Post click the Execute Sequence button ().  The Execute Video Post box comes up.  Select Single Frame (unless you have an animated sequence that you are rendering, then have Range selected with the appropriate frames that you want to render.).  Then click Render to see your rendered image (it will take a few seconds (or minutes, or hours depending on the magnitude and size of your scene) to actually see the affects of the glow, becuase it is applied after all the geometry is already rendered.)

**Note:  You cannot see the glow in a regular render, you have to render through video post for the glow to be applied.


10.)  Here is a snapshot of the results I got while using the exact instructions I have given you hear.  I understand there might be a little to much glow there to really look like a light saber but you will just have to play with it a little while to adjust it.  You can download the actual .max scene that I created while right this tutorial here.


Hope you have fun creating your light saber and I hope this tutorial helped.  You can contact me at BrentK7@Fanflicks.com. and you can check out my website at http://www.fanflicks.com/innervision/
