yes yes.....i know about the alamdv plugins. i think that alot of people(including me) would like something that allows us to have more control over lightning. i also think someone should make a preset for that little bulge/swell that happens when 2 sabers are being pushed together during a parry.

Yeah, more control over lightning isn't going to be accomplished in a preset. A specific lightning engine has been discussed in the past in the products forum, and is a possibility in the future, but isn't specifically scheduled to be implemented any time in the near future. At this point, the old AlamDV plug-ins you mentioned are still a better bet than a preset from any of the effects engines.

No problem. As far as the saber sweel, there are lots of clash presets, which would probably work well if you scaled them down a bit.
