When i try to playback the lightsaber animation the only part with a glow is the very first frame then nothing? Can someone point me in the right direction please. I followed the tutorials but still nothing.

I'm not sure what you mean by prefixes.

Right-click the name of the effect on the timeline, and select Duration. What is the duration set to currently? Try changing it to a much longer duration and see if that helps.

Did changing the duration solve the problem then?
