Very Useful. I remember I did my own light saber once but frame by frame. Thanks!

Hey guys. Haven't used this plugin for ages, worked well back then. Now using it again in AE CS6.
My problem is that the blur seems to run in the wrong direction! not coming from the last frame but going to the next like predicting the future. i just don't know why. the sabre effect now looks like beein played backwards. any ideas where to tweak?

I've always had this problem, I just had to edit backward, or account for where the blur will go. I assumed it was just part of how the plug-in worked.

If you want to pass this along, I actually believe I have found a workaround!

I simply add BOTH the solid that contains the lightsaber effect and my footage to a new precomposed composition. Then, I reverse my footage WITHIN that precomposed composition. I then do the animation of the lightsaber within that precomposition.

Next, I go to the master composition and on the pre-comp I reverse it again by going to Layer-->Time-->Time Reverse Layer and BOOM! It is now playing normally (not in reverse) with the effect working properly.

Hope this helps somebody!
