Haven't noticed that at all. I've imported full tapes with no problems. Maybe it's a version problem?
Ver. 1.1.2427.1... so sort of special or upgraded edition.
For the hilt I used this simple combination which cost less than $13.
1 8in long 3/4in galvinized steel pipe nipple (hilt)
1 3/4 steel galvinized pipe end-cap (pommel)
1 1in UL conduit connector (emmiter)
For the blades I have found a new source: Ski poles.
I found mine in the trash. They're fiberglass and I wrapped them in tape to protect actors against shattering (although they have take quite a beating and are still just fine.) I went to a skiswap 2 days ago and they had composite ski poles going for $20/pair.
Two or three 1in bolts with stopnuts to hold the blade in place... viola! Good looking stunt saber for $23, and VERY easy to construct.
The only downside is that they really suck as hero props.
Can anyone on here help me with a making lightsabers wth Ulead Media Studio V 5.0. I tried using Clay Cronkes Tutorial, but It doesn't make any sense like he says open in Video Paint... THERE IS NO VIDEO PAINT.. I have been over the help section and the book OVER AND OVER.. sorry this is very frustrating. So if anyone else knows how to make the effects using this program.. Please.. PLEASE let me know.
Just one thing, in the article it states that you would be hard pressed to find a graflex 3 cell for less than $1000. I think you meant to put $100. You can get a graflex 3 cell from parksabers.com for $150.
And now I will gloat because I was right.
On the first page I said, "within a week there will be a new thread..."
That was on the 10th. Yesterday was the 16th. I almost was wrong by a full day. Almost.
I now will laugh
It's so hard being so right all the time!
Just a Note about [link=http://www.thelightsaber.com]LuukeSabers[/link] is that you are not allowed to steal the designs because lately he has issued that that is Plagiarism
Hey guys. I make my sabers out of wooden dowels, but I paint them and they don't look real at all. I remember in one of the EP3 webdocs they explained that they'd learned to chrome rubber. Is it possible to chrome wood? How? Thanks for the help.
No: wood is not conductive, and you need a conductive material to chrome plate
You can use "chrome" paint, or chrome tape.
You should look after that lsmaker, they have new sabers looking realy like episode 3 sabers
And that's a good thing?
i personaly think starwars lightsabers are cooler
Ah, I see. I just meant that IMHO the ROTS sabers were a little...lacking.
If darthvalek hasnt told any of you yet-theres a new program that is made just for lightsabers-maby some of you have heard of it-its called LSMaker and theres also other programs such as lssound,for the sounds, and lstext,for the flying text at the beginning of the movies. It call all be found at [link=http://lsmaker.uw.hu]lsmaker.uw.hu [/link]
Very, very old news. Thanks for trying though.
Well, while it's old news, it's not in the main topic, which is odd.
some kid from lsmaker forums.I use only AE for this matter lsmaker sucks when compared with ae.no offence
and ur not a kid? are u just some 20 year old star wars nerd that lives with his mom? and i do use ae
Let's stay on topic guys.
If any of you guys out there have macs, there's a great program called Crimson FX. It is available for download here http://www.lamarchefamily.net/nakedsoft/ . There's one downside to this program. When you widen the core, the aura widens also. The source code is available on the site also. If anyone here knows how to modify it so that the aura stays the same size, and would do it, and would send the new code to me at firstname.lastname@example.org that would be awesome. Thanx
please don't insult me C_E.
DV EDIT: Let's leave it at that.
Yes, this is a lightsaber related question.
Dorkman, what audio editor did you use for Ryan vs. Dorkman, or just, what audio editor do you use?
(Lightsaber related in the way my question is related to Lightsaber Sound Mixing.)
I used Sonic Foundry Sound Forge XP. Might have been a good question for a PM, instead.
Sorry Dorkman, I just wanted to know because [link=http://s7.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=1BZX8198LTGRC1720QKEOI7GDB]these sounds[/link] were not in any of the six movies, so were obviously other sounds that were edited, so I just wanted to know what program you used to edit them. That's all.
