I hate it that all the new guys just asume that all the newer guys are trying to rip the proggy.

Hey thanks alot. There is one more thing though. Do you draw the mask over the "saber" as it moves behind the person, or what? And if I tween the laser fire it goes to slow, how do I make clean, smooth, fast laser blasts? Thanks for listing!Here was my response:
Yes, draw the mask over the saber where it would be behind an object or person. I would use one of the "soft" masks becuase they have feathered edges and will allow a little light "spillage" around the object or person.BTW thanks for registering now we will treat you better
If that laser is moving too slow for you try key framing by hand. Assuming you used the "tween" or "stretch" plugin method on the timeline I would move the laser bolt a little closer to the target on each frame. If the is still not fast enough you can always move the laser bolt off the video on every other frame and move the remaining bolts closer to the target on each of their frames. Less frames means it will appear to the eye to move faster. By moving every other or every third frame off the video you can keep the "tween" or "stretch". In other words it will save time.
