This has happened every time I have applied lightsabers to anything, not just this test footage. Here is a snapshot

I'm not sure why it does this, so if anyone can help that would be great.

Thanks

Number one, I assume you're running in 32-bit color depth...

That being said, I think I may have had this problem before, but since I have not done a lightsaber battle in a looooong time, I can't be sure. But it may have had something to do with the "Lightsword Only" blur option in rendering. Did you use that?

This can happen when you apply blur in the rendering stage.

Yes I am running 32-bit, and yeah I applied blur in rendering stage. But if you don't the lightsabers look horrible un-blurred. Is there a way to cause this from not happening?

I suppose I will wait for AlamDV3 or whatever it is going to be named, its right around the corner so it is no big deal.
Thanks
