Select the "Lightsaber Only Mode" in one of the dropdowns.

That only works for lightsabers there, pal.

I think there's an export option to export on black. Then your footage will be replaced by black, and your effects will still be there. Then in a compositing program (IE Chromy) you put your original footage in the lower layer, and your effects on the upper layer. Set the effect layer to 'add', and then blur the layer.

Sort of a long-winded way to do it, but I imagine it will be able to be done directly in the program in AlamDV3.
