Is there a tutorial on how to do this? I saw the note in the preset about copying the setting from lightsaber setting 1, or 2 to the flicker line. However, how do you do that?
I guess bottom line, what are the steps to use the flicker preset properly? Thanks!

I'm not too sure I understand what you are talking about with the flicker line.
But if you want to make you own preset of a lightsaber flicker just go to the the glow attributes on start moving the "randomizer"s slides to the right and it will create a flickering effect. The more to the right you slide the slider the quicker the blade will appear to flicker.

Thanks for the info! What I was talking about is the preset lightsaber flicker that comes with the software. It looks like you have to copy it on top of other presets.

It's just the same thing as if you were applying the two part lightsaber presets.
First, apply part one and set your keyframes as you normally would.
Next, put Part Two above Part One, then you copy the 4-point shape (or freehand) track from Part One (by right clicking) from the "Neon Shapes" section to the same section on Part Two. This will copy all your keyframes from the first track to the second. AKA, the end result is that the flicker track perfectly overlays the lower track.
Note: if you later make changes to one track, be sure to recopy them to the other.
Hope this makes sense.
