Title: Lightsaber
Post by: wiipowner on August 19, 2009, 03:36:14 am
I created a lightsaber today because i was bored, made the design myself.  I think i need something more on the hilt but idk.  Tell me what you think, i also dont know how to do the beam.

You can do the beam the same way they do it in the games. Just some trans maps on some flat planes.

Bit shiny isn't it? I would like to see it duller.

And antialiased, in case you don't know how:

When rendering, tick the "antialised" box.
