Im trying to do a lightsaber effect and it's working well so far but the lightsaber passes behind a person and I don't know how to fix it......

Its a bit unclear from your post what the problem actually is, but I'm guessing you want to add a mask
to the effect, in the area the person should cover.

Ummm... The lightsaber passes by a person and I want the saber to "go away" when it passes by the person.

You need to create a mask in the shape of the person you want the saber to go behind.

Yep done that, but no key frame is showing up.

It may be easiest to watch the tutorials if you haven't already. If, once you have made a mask, there are no keyframes as you said, you may have simply neglected to lock the mask and animate it. If that doesn't make any sense, I definitely recommend watching the tutorials for masking.
