Well with photoshop you can ad effects as shadows and artificial blue screens.(i use the blue screen effect a lot check out the tut's on

you can also create lightsabers and balls with it but you need to do it with ervery frame in your movie no tweening opr something like that so if your movie is 30 frame a second it can take a while.(like 20 years)

but there is an angel alamdv.
it is to bad that my dad won't let me by it cry cry cry cry

but someday i will get it

Photoshop can be used quite effectively in conjunction with Premiere and After Effects. You can export your footage from either of these programs as a filmstrip, which you can then open in Photoshop and work on all of your frames in a single file. I believe this is the principal way in which Photoshop is used in video work.

whoa -- after effects can tween - it's major property is animation. It's not mad cash for nothing. However ALAM is much easier.
