I'll need plugin of a stub, place where lightsaber cut leg, hand, head etc. I'll be able to 'delete' limb/head using other programs, but I'm at a loss what to put in it's place. I think round plugins would be most useful, if you can streight them.
Thx in advance!

If your using photoshop or something similar to remove the limb then use this tutorial:

Uhm, yeah, perhaps my english need more training redface
I mean not how to show limb falling down etc., but a plugin of cut flesh; when lightsaber cuts body, it leaves burnt flesh, like in Empire Strikes Back, when Luke lost hand. With plugin like this, I'll be able to show, for example, armless guy from any direction i like.
I hope this is easier to understand, sorry for problem!
