I assume by Lighting you mean lightning.

For a flame saber, it would either be a particle effect (most likely 2 particle effects, one for each side of the blade) or stock footage. At the current tim e, a lightning saber would have to be stock, I think. there just aren't the controls in Elab to make a good preset for one. If anyone thinks otherwise, please prove me wrong.

If you request someone else to make the preset for you, can you really call it something original? eek
