this requires 3 layers so you should just use for pictures, or short tests. any-way, all the layer's 4-point feather will be 4. Layer 1: The neon glow will have the size 24 and the spread 6. Layer 2: Core feather 21, size 65, and spread 15. Layer 3: Copy layer 2 and make the core feather 13 and voula! instant lightsaber, lightsabre, lightsword, Neon light or whatever it is that you call it!
P.S. I used the default coler of red so I don't know about different colors but try it! biggrin biggrin

4-point F=4
core=default
size=24
spred 6

L2
4-point F=4
core F=21

spread 15

I just tried it out with the Blue saber, and it turned out quite nicely. But he should have just released this as a preset. And I wouldn't really consider this an "instant" lightsaber, because you are forced to go through several steps...
