"Stretching" an effect accross frames of film? Also know as "tweening"

Or "Stretching" as in manipulation of an effect quad on a single frame? Like fitting a lightsword blade effect to fit over a prop blade.

Let us know and I or one of the top blokes around here could 'splain it or direct you to a link that 'splains it.

"stretch across a frame" singular... I guess you mean quad manipluation then. Here a couple of links.

"Animation Mode Basics section B The Effect Quad" (About Halfway down the page)

Tarns Tutorials take a look at "The ALAMDV2 INTERFACE: 5. Quad Manipulation"

This should get you started. If you have anymore question come back and scream at me! lol
