Give you a glance of how Starwars lightsaber effect is done
This is a short compilation video for our school's video yearbook, using clips from our many non-uniform days and other occaisons.
The clips had to be edited with lightsaber effects, sounds and music though, otherwise it just wouldn't be Star Wars.
We decided to try some cool video special effects, so we made this short StarWars style lightsaber fight. If you like that, maybe I'll explain how to create a lightsaber effect :)
Battle For Three was by far the hardest movie we've ever done. It took me about 3 weeks to do all the effects. It helped me to hone down my lightsaber effect skills as well as the Gun Flare. I hope you enjoy!

RYAN WIEBER VS. MICHAEL "DORKMAN" SCOTT
What began as a friendly rivalry between two effects artists explodes off TheForce.Net's FanFilms Forum and into the real world in a lightsaber battle royale.
Originally created for the forum's lightsaber choreography competition, this fight to the death will decide once and for all who is truly most skilled with a saber.
There can be only one.
(I did not make this short film, stop asking me how I made the special effects. Its a mix of rotoscoping, photoshop and After Effects.)

FAQs (from ryanvsdorkman****)
How did you do those lightsaber effects?
We used Adobe After Effects to rotoscope the prop blades and add glows to them. Essentially the same way ILM does it. After Effects was also used for a variety of other visual effects you see (or don't see) in RvD.
How long did it take you to make this, and when did it come out?
We choreographed and filmed over the course of three weekends, and spent about 4 months on the effects in our spare time, finishing March 1st, 2003.
Did you guys have any martial arts or sword training when you made this?
Neither of us had any formal training of any kind at the time of making RvD. Just watched a lot of movies.
Where was this shot, and what is that thing in the background?
RvD was filmed at Carco Electronics, who built flight simulators for the aerospace industry. The machine in the background is a satellite tracking positioner, the specifications of which were top secret. After the machine was finished being built, it was shipped off to an "undisclosed location".
Where did you get the lightsaber props you guys are fighting with?
The saber props were actually built for this. They were made in several parts using a lathe, mill, and other metalworking tools. Aluminum tubing (like you can find at your local hardware store) were used for the blades.
What kind of camera did you film with?
Canon GL-1 camcorder.
Requested by many "Youtubers" who saw my lightsaber effect tutorial, I put together over 5 minutes of high quality Star Wars sound effects.
All the lightsaber sounds are from a program most people are familiar with who own a MACBOOK... MACsaber.
Everything else is from numerous Star Wars video games.
In this video:
Lightsaber Sound Effects
Laser blaster Sound Effects
Jetpack Sound Effects
Xwing/Tie Fighter Sound Effects
Darth Vader Breathing (Normally and Hurt)

To all you Fanfilm makers out there, I am glad I can help and good luck!
This is a LEGO stop motion movie I made for a LEGO star wars movie contest (Which I did not win). The blaster and lightsaber effects were done separately on Photoshop to each frame. I am currently working on Jedi Hunters II
