I am going to make a movie soon and I need a thing that is sorta like a lightsaber except it's a circle. It kinda looks like this:

___
/ / \ \
|<==>|
\ \ / /

if you can understand what that is supposed to mean, i congradulate you! (sp? lol) the two little equal-signs in the middle are supposed to be the handle of the thing so if someone decides to make this, they don't need to make that part.

Well I can make this plug-in for you, but there will be a problem. There is no way to make the glow size adjustable. The reason for this is that when AlamDV scales up the size of the glow, it pulls all the edges away from the middle, so when you enlarge the glow, it will get stretched toward the edges, and there will be no glow left inside the ring. Did you understand that?

However, to make this plug-in with a fixed glow would not be hard, I would just need to know how big you want the glow, and in what colors. Maybe set the glow to the size you would like using a lightsword plug-in, and then send me a pic.

(i dont really kno how hahaha yeah i'm not a HTML person) so i guess you can just guess or mabe you can PM me with the pic in it or something like that.

You could attach it to an e-mail and send it to me at wilkinson@usintouch.com if that works better.

Well, I have completed three versions of this plug-in, with different sized glows, and 8 color variations in each. Hopefully I can get them uploaded and posted soon.
