Hello,

I have 2 questions about the Saber plug-in.

1. I am able to get the shape masks and animations going perfectly fine using a text layer but for some of the saber presets it seems to place a border around the text outline layer that I haven't been able to get rid of. How would I go about to ensure that the border does not exist on any of the presets?

2. Is there any way to create a perfect loop using this plug-in?

Thank you.

Issue with 2 masks? Please help

Super easy to add a "layer mask" to give saber a path to follow... BUT when I add a second mask to crop out a foreground shape, saber applies its effect to both masks, regardless of how I specify "add" or "subtract" ect..
My goal is to make a saber path create a light streak in the background, behind some people in the foreground.

What I am doing wrong?
