Hi there..

Tell me guys.. What am I doing wrong:
I start a new project and i add a lightsaber effect on a rod..
And when I save the project and open it again to continue, the white middle part of the saber is gone.. All what is left is the colour of the saber.. The glow.. WHere does it go and how can I get it back??

Help me Obi Wan Kenobies... You are my last hopes...

Color depth is a setting for your monitor. Let us know what OS you are using, and someone can tell you exactly where to find it.

The Blur option is something you turn on during the redering process in alamDV if you want to. It should be off by default, so if you are not turning it on, that probably isn't the problem. After you select Render or Export in AlamDV ( I can't recall now exactly what name it gives the command), you will get a little window that pops up where you can set some rendering options. The blur controls are found there.
