Is there a reason that ordinary footage of people swinging sticks won't work? Character animation is incredibly complex and difficult, whereas anyone with a camcorder can film their buddy swinging a lightsaber prop.

Yeah. A lot of people can do it, but it isn't really worth the time and effort for practice. Try it with friends first! smile
