  8. Localized Lockup Effect for Proffieboard Neopixel

    Here's a few examples of the new Localized Lockup effect I built for neopixel sabers on Proffieboard. The style mimics the look in the films of two blades crossing really nicely. Enjoy!

    After some feedback and more testing here's my favorite style, it's a slight variation on Style 2 (which was most popular) from my last tests. It looks really good in person (it washes out a little...

    Yes, I'm using theProplicator's 7/8 inch quillions, I think he lists them under PPv2.
    Thank you for all the help and info, I never would have gotten to this point without help.

    Yes, it looks good so far, I have 3 pixels in it, 2 on one side and one on the other and it's just as bright as the rest of the blade. Still working on the styles and all but so far I like it.
