I am kinda new to after effects and im just trying to find out what I can do. I want to make a light saber effect, I know someone else already asked about how to make a light saber but the process of frame by frame masking a stick like item seems really tedious and boring. I am wondering if there is any way I could track 2 nulls to either end of the handle of the light saber and then place the blade ontop following the direction of a line between both nulls?
Sure you can - if the shot has been prepared and filmed accordingly. You would simply use the Beam effect which incidentally has 2 crosshairs already... *oops*
Ah thank you!
