after talking to the friend of mine with the lightsaber software, he let me know that he would give me a copy of it. Sooo, I will soon have in my possesion the ability to create lightsaber effects in a movie. It will take some tinkering with to get it down I'm sure, but if we ever make a fan film, at least we will be able to have some lightsabers. On a side note, he told me that you could also make Sith lightning, and a few other things. I'm thinking about messing around with some action figures in a stop motion type thing first.
