Hi guys im very new to this program and it looks very interesting, and many people like me are keen to make there first lightsaber clip.
i have made a small footage of my holding a wooden sword and wanted to turn the sword to a lightsaber... i know how to make a lightsaber effect but when it comes to moving around i am lost how to make the effect longer and just refit the effect to the wooden sword, if someone could tell me the basics of it i have read a few tutorials i still seem lost or even a small video tutorial to a small LS clip would be ace thanks guys.

You could say "manual" too.
