First of all this is what we will be creating (The lightsaber in the window)
So lets get started...
First of all I will not be showing you any methods of creating a lightsaber in this tutorial so I will be using a preset
The preset I will be using can be found here
Okay so first start of with your clip, for this tutorial I will be using the clip you just watched but will not have the lightsaber reflection.
Right here is my footage
Okay so the red circle shows my lightsaber prop in the window.
What you want to do is get the lightsaber preset and make a normal mask around the lightsaber prop in the window (Keep all the attributes the same for now.)
Okay it should look something like this
Okay now what you want to do is mask the lightsaber prop in the window throughout the whole of your clip. If you don't see it, it might be behind an object etc so don't mask randomly anywhere.
Okay once you have done that lower the transparency of the lightsaber to about 20
Then go to the neon glow and change the
Size to: 62
Spread to: 19
Leave all the rest of the attributes as they are.
Your Size and Spread may differ due to different footage like how light/dark it is.
Okay that's the end.
This is my final shot picture of it at the end
