I don't know if anyonehas seen the last samurai. But in the movie, when someone was sliced a cut was actually shown appearing as the person swung the sword. Someone who has seen the movie should know what I'm talking about. I was wondering if someone could make a gash plugin. Or if not tell me how to do it.

Do it in production, not post. I don't know how, but it is much easier and better.

I think it was in Gladiator they had a sword with a hollow blade and a small hole right at the tip, then they filled the blade with a little fake blood so when you swing the blade, the blood sprays across in a straight line following the path of the blade. Then you'd have to either fall down quickly and/or cut to a shot with proper make up effects.

That one's easy. You abduct someone that nobody will miss, then you actually slit their throat open, dispose of the body, and tell everyone it was special effects.
