How do you people get your lightsabers to hold really still when your actors aren't moving them? Whenever I do it it always looks really wiggly and moves around alot. Any help would be appriectiated! Thank You biggrin

Use a brightly coloured tube to represent your lightsabre when filming. Then just overlay the Alam one. It works as a reference, so your sabre will always be in the right position

It easy, you just copy the first frame you use the lightsaber and paste it at the second frame. biggrin
