Sorry for being so quiet on progress as of late. I actually need some help on this one. Shown below is a gif of one of the shots that I’m compositing the lightsaber effects onto.

I’m using a Plugin literally called “saber” and have it to apply to layers masks. The problem I’m having is masking out the areas of the lightsaber blade so it isn’t layered on top of the characters as they’re fighting. Problem is, the Saber plugin when set to layer masks applies to ALL masks that exist on the selected layer. Anyone with After effects experience know how I can achieve the proper blocking out of the blade? Here’s a link to a video covering the plugin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=reSXGxkyr0k&t=1937s

Also, if anyone knows of a better method of upscaling, that would be great. This shot in particular is the best i can do with After Effects’ Detail Preserving Upscale.

Hey everybody. Sorry for the radio silence. I’ve been busy lately. Long story short, aside from making fan edits, I also make my own short films, host a podcast and do all sorts of things involved with the industry. Since things are beginning to look up in terms of job opportunities in my profession, I’ve been putting most of my time into getting prepared for the summer. Naturally, working on this project has been booted to the very bottom of my priority list. Not because I don’t enjoy working on it, but simply because I have more important things to worry about. Thankfully, because I don’t wanna leave things unfinished, I’ve put together a schedule during the week to improve progress. Things may be subject to change, but I plan on getting it out within the year. For those who have followed the project, thank you for the patience and stay tuned.

How is this going?

Slowly but surely. Fan edits have taken a back seat on my priority list.
