Art of Blender
The Art of Blender is full of inspiring renderings from Blender artists around the world.
In this Blender 2.5 video tutorial we tackle something that is on most people’s “create before I die” list, a light saber. This tutorial focuses in on the post-processing aspect by setting up a node network to create the effect of the glowing blade of a light saber. Modeling is not covered in this tutorial, but the model is included in the source files to play with.
Note: this tutorial uses the official Blender 2.5 Alpha 2 release.
