Yeah, but your spin was more random than his. His looked professionally spun heh, not sure why.

One thing that no one seemed to point out was that there was a shot where the laser just went right past the saber and blew up on the ground. Conceivably, that could happen, but it just looked akward in the middle when the rest of the shots hit directly.

If your intention was to have it miss, then I would move it to the beginning or end of the sequence so it doesn't stick out as much.

Other than that it worked well

Yeah, the missing laser was a bit fake, the explosion was REALLY fake. I just downloaded some plug-ins, that are great! eek Thanks for pointing it out.

Very good for your first time!

Apart from what has already been mentioned, I believe there's a frame or two after you spin where the lightsaber is missing the effect. It's very subtle, but just something to watch for next time!

Peace~
