Cinelinx’s Ultimate Lightsaber Tutorial Resource

What's the one thing every Star Wars fan wants to do (besides becoming best friends with George Lucas)? Put Lightsabers into every picture/video that they can. Fans have been trying to recreate the effect since they first hit the big screen, but for years, money was a huge factor in not being able to get that look. These days with technology being what it is, just about anyone with a computer and the will can get those great Star Wars effects.

With a new crop of Star Wars films on the horizon and in honor of our ongoing Star Wars month here at Cinelinx, today I wanted to throw all of you filmmakers and fans a gigantic bone. Scouring the Internet I've compiled for you the best Lightsaber effects tutorials around the web. So this can be your one-stop resource (with links to free software, tutorials, etc.) without having to waste time trying to find everything you need to add Lightsaber effects to your film.
