Hey everybody, I am kind of new here, and I was just wondering if someone could quick slap a plug-in together for me. I just need some misc lightsaber hilts, no animations or anything. Im pretty sure there are renders availible out there, I just dont exaclty know how to make a plug-in yet (I'll work on that)
Thanks for any help!!

And if it's not too much to ask, could someone throw some like those into a plug-in? I dont know how yet, and if it's hard or time consuming then just dont worry about it. I just want to do some force pulling of a lightsaber from off the ground in a saber battle.
Thanks again for any help!!!

Here's the trick for force-pulling a lightsaber from the ground: -- fishing line. Tie fishing line around the hilt, and pull it up into the air from off camera. Then cut to your character ccatching it, as someone throws it to him from off camera. It is quick, easy, and very effective.
I used this technique in 'Jedi Victorious' in the cinema section, if you want to see it in action. You cannot see the fishing line at all.

the maul saber won't render right
do you want the dooku hilt? I can find a mesh for that if you want.

just going back to the fishing line method of getting a lightsaber, if you use Premiere, wouldnt it be easier to throw the saber on the ground, then reverse it (by setting the speed to -100), as then you can see the whole shot of the saber coming off the ground into your hand and it looks cool and magical

I never really replied and said thank you for making those sabers. So thats what Im doing now, Thanks!!
And thank-you everyone else for your ideas about the whole lightsaber pull effect. I think I will experiment with all of them. I just have Studio 7, but my school's TV class has AVID (I know that reverses clips) and I think you can in Final Cut Pro as well( I'm just learning how to use it)
