can anyone make a plugin of qui gon jins lightsaber from episode 1? I have a toy saber that is like that and i would like to use it to force grab and to throw at someone (obvoiusly i can't really throw it at them...). It would also be halpful if it could have a front both sides, back and blurred views so i can make it spin and blur when it is thrown. I tried the other saber hilts but they don't look right because i have shown several closeups of the saber previously and it has to be the same hilt.

You can do this with a real lightsaber. Do a shot of either throwing it and reversing it, or use fishing line to get the saber into your hand. Then cut to a different shot, one where you throw it at him (with the other guy off camera), and then a third shot of him dodging it. Then it will look good, but you won't have to actually throw it at him all in one shot.

throw it at his chest lightly, and speed up the footage, or just throuw it normal speed and put some padding under the person's shirt who t he sabers coming at. If you really want a plugin, make sure you request it to have motion blur to it.

im still not sure if this will work... i know this is gruesome, but we are having it stay in his chest. how would that be accomplished?

It wouldn't stay in his chest, if you threw it. Unless someone was holding it, it would slice right through him and fall out.

I had an idea of making a movie on all the bad things that can be done in a movie and name it t he worst movie ever. I could have shaky cameras no story, crummy effects that pan with the camera, and other problems with many movies. It will be fun

Just make sure you don't make it so horribly that no one wants to watch it. If you do that, make sure it is bad in a good way, and that the humor isn't too obvious or too subtle. I actually think that doing that well would be difficult, if you know what I mean.

Oh. Well, that still is a good idea, maybe we should suggest that to Kaz and his buds.
