360 Lightsword (2-point Auto): Provides a rapid method of applying lightsword effects to your 360° film requiring the placing of a point on the hilt and a point on the blade tip.
360 Lightsword (4-point Manual): Allows you to implement lightsword effects into 360° film with precise positioning, with two points defining the edges of the hilt and two points defining the edges of the blade tip.
