    Is there anyway to apply the saber effect to an object extruded in element 3d.

    In this case i have a plane on wich i want to draw a mask on the extruderd object and apply the saber effect to it.

    But the saber effect now can be seen from both sides of the solid, but i just want it to Bee seen on one side.

    Hey Richard,

    You can either add Saber to a 2.5D layer and parent it to Element’s 3D Null or you can add it as a custom texture and create a material to add it to the Element model.

    Hope that makes sense,
