How do you change the number of frames per second with EffectsLab? Right now it's giving me 59 frames a second which I think is a little too much. Any help would be appreciated.

If you are working with Interlaced footage, EffectsLab willl double the frames. These frames wil then be put back normally when rendered.

So do I need to animate every frame or just animate every other frame and it will turn out fine when I render it?

Sometimes when you're animating lightsabers on interlaced footage, it will look realistic but very interlaced (looks great tho on a television). Animate every frame of the movie. Remember to de-interlace your footage if you're putting it up on the internet or something like that (for viewing on a computer).

When I create movies, I always keep an interlaced version so I can use that if I want to burn it on DVD.

Animate every single frame, although you can use key-framing if your lightsaber doesn't move to much.

Good luck!
