Well if you want to know what I used for my light sabers... they are papar rolls... It is amazing what you can find and use for films such as what I did. well yes before you even edit your movie it looks like its just messing around, but when you put the effects on and save them... you can see your project, and become happy with it. As I said... paper rolls are good for light sabers. . . .

8.8 megs for 23 seconds? HOLY COW! you might want to try compressing your internet video files. . . .

I suggest that as well. I managed to squeeze a 50 second clip that's 720x480 into something like 5mb.

8.8 mb for 23 seconds is a helluva lot better than greybro's 8 megabytes for 9 seconds - -

Actually I think that's the worst compression on the site - a record - hurray for you, greybro!

use low quality divx

high quality divx with AC3 coding can store upto 2 hours with only 1GB.

The sabre effects were ok except one point where the sabre bent at a different angle than the handle. There were some other problems though the light sabre should go off when dropped and if it didn't why the did it not burn the floor and any other object it touches, also the one guy was smiling the whole time that always bothers me.

Just saying.. but I used paper rolls to fight with... my mate hit my paper roll too hard causing it to bend! I no that the saber never turned off... it also does that on Art of the Saber (they dont turn off). I noticed that one on one of the scenes there is A foot tapping on the floor underneath the seat... but once you get the full glimpse of the seat, there is nobody there.... The guy smiling was someone in the background. Anyway, I am making another movie soon. smile
