I'm planning to film a lightsaber battle, and EffectsLab seems to be the best program for the job. However, having to rotoscope the Lightsaber Part 1 and Part 2 effects is very time consuming. So I was wondering, is there a way to link Part 1 and 2, so that I can rotoscope them at the same time?

drag part one and part two into the media browser, then rotoscope the duel with part one. once you've finished, right click on "4-point" and click "copy 4-point shape". then go to part 2, right click on "neon shapes", and click "paste 4-point shape". happy rotoscoping! biggrin
