So i realized recurring issue with this macro. if you apply this macro to your footage, it will default its pixel resolution to what your Globals are set to. To fix this minor issue, be sure that your Globals are set to the same resolution of the footage you are working with. Sorry for the inconvenience, I will try to get this fixed for version 1.1
I promised to do it, and here it is, the ILM style lightsaber glow effect. I did a ton of research, listened to what the pros at SIGGRAPH had to say, and also viewed how many other effects artists designed their lightsaber effects. This is how i came to the conclusion that "this is how its supposed to be done".
So please, this is just a beta release before my next macro pack, and I want all the feedback I can get. I would like to know what you like about it, what changes I should make, and any ideas you may have for macros to be released with the final version of this one.
