hi i am new to alam dv2 and am making a star wars spoof with my friends. I put in the effect and stretch it to the length i want and fix each frame using the little quad thing which is kind of annoying... I was just wondering if you can use alam dv1 mode for each frame in a saber effect. It seems that would be easier. Is there a way to do that or no? Thanks for all your previous help too...

You should be able to do the alamDV1 mode on each frame. Add the effect, and then in animation mode, select AlamDV1 interface, then in the Modify menu, select reset quad. I believe you should be able to just go through one frame at a time and place the effect. Click hilt, hilt, tip, tip in a counter-clockwise fashion for the best results.
