About This File

This mod replaces the lightsaber blade textures. I've made new textures using Saber, a plug-in for After Effects made by visual effect artists who work on the actual films, which they released for free on VideoCopilot.net. The new textures are of higher quality (1024x1024 vs the original 128x128) and should be more accurate to the movie look, given that they were generated with a tool made by movie people.

I've adjusted some of the blade colors; I mainly used math to choose them, placing them at even distributions along the color spectrum, and sticking with the plug-in's default setting for blue. In more practical terms, this means yellow is a bit yellower, while green and violet are closer to the blue end. Blue itself is much brighter than the original.

I've included two install options for the Heart of the Guardian and Mantle of the Force colors. The default is my approximation of the original game textures, while the Alternate Textures folder has them  changed to look more like standard lightsaber blades since I had to do them anyway for the K2 version. Heart becomes orange and Mantle becomes cyan, if you choose this option.

Added TXI files. This doesn't actually change anything, but it will help with compatibility with other mods. If you're overriding another mod's textures, you have to replace the TXIs as well or else my textures won't look right.
