A demonstration of the model and materials for Nate's saber in "Alex vs. Nate 2".
Ben McEwan modeled the saber for one of Nate Caauwe's other duels, "Duel of the Dorks" in 2010. When Nate told me we'd be using the same saber for AVN2, I contacted Ben and asked him for the model and textures he'd made. Once I got the model, I had to edit the emitter end of the mesh to add a bit more detail so it would suit my purposes for the shot, then I had to edit the black paint texture to make it match the real prop's current paint job. Then I recreated the materials in Blender for the Cycles render engine.
