You know you could just apply the lightsaber effect to the handle . . . .

You DON'T need a plugin for that kind of stuff . . . . neutral

there is no poll to use as a guide

No. I have done it with no prop other than the hilt before. You just put one end of the blade on the hilt and the other wherever.

Based on past experience I have found that no matter how many posts mention what a stupid idea a particular plug-in is, if you go ahead and created it and submit it to the site, lots of people will still download it.

Personally, I wouldn't use a plug-in for this, but I'm sure many people would. So go for it, WiRyPoCkEtLiNt, and ignore the complaints and criticisms.

For this type of plug-in in AlamDV, to really get a versatile plug-in requires that you include several angles. In this particular case, yeah I think the top and side views would do it. Any angle between the two could be achieved by re-shaping one of those views.
