I recorded my kids playing light saber duels with PVC pipes and pool noodle handles..(those things have endless uses, don't they?) then I edited and saved the footage in adobe premier as a film strip. I opened the file in Photoshop, and rotoscoped the lightsaber effects in photoshop and reopened the finished strip in Premier again. Lightsaber sound effects and the Star Wars sound track was added last before saving it as an AVI file.

Great work as always Doc.

As I understand the process of RotoScoping don't you have to paint each individual frame to get the effect? That must have taken forever.

It took 7 hours from shoot to final edit (with small breaks in between). Once you get in a groove, it goes kinda quick.
