I tried to do what you said, but that's the result (with a feather of the core at 2)

Thanks. I used the presents you gave me, but I would like to have a ligthsaber like that:

If you can't get it to look the way you want, then you should try out some of the preset found here:

Is it the same using the color near blu (it's a blu more clear)? .

There's a reason lightsaber fights in the movies usually happen againt dark backgrounds. As Oeyvind said, try experimenting with the blend method. He didn't mean add another copy of the lightsaber, he meant alter the blend method itself. To do this, click on the object's title in the track listing to display its properties in the toolbox. Then use the blend method to change how it is composited into the shot. Some of the alternative options might help you.
