Well, it's finally time to light her up. See what works, see what doesn't. Crystal chamber is pretty neat, lighting progressively along with the blade. It also flickers each LED corresponding to Accubolt flickering of random segments, which is cool. It also flicker clashes with the blade.
Around a year and a half in my brain, a little over a year in production, and we have a lit blade.
The little illuminated ring under the emitter works ok, about like my other sabers.
These last shots were at a power setting of 425 out of 511.
At 475 out of 511, it gets a little crazy. This is with me setting the camera exposure correctly for the room, THEN turning it on
Letting the camera self adjust to the brightness gives this kind of pic.
Left to do: Set swing sensitivity, clash settings, select volume and brightness settings for each bank, finish the NON bladed grenade section.
