I've been hoping to work up a version of this effect as well, with just the glow, designed for a variety of different blade shapes. One of these days I'll give it a go. Until then, I look forward to seeing your plug-in of this effect.

Why dont you add a another layer in photoshop, over the original sword layer or drawing or picture or whatever you wish to call it. use your lasso tool to lasso out the area of the sword where you want the glow to go. once you have the area lassoed out. fill it with white. now you have a selection you can now add the glow or whatever to the selection and the original layer. thus having the glow on its own layer. now you can turn of the background layer and the glow only remains. just an suggestion
(oh carefully, carefully, go back and remove the white in the middle of the blade.) tedious I know,

again, just a suggestion

Hi!

A good idea for glow is use Trapcode Shine for After Effects, the light sources and the rays are great. biggrin
