This is an after effects test that I did, to see how easy it is to create a lightsaber. The four seconds of special effects in the test film took four hours! That is because this was the first time I had done a lightsaber. I also was looking all over the web to find information on putting perspective on a ripple effect. To my dismay, I didn't find anything, but in the process I did find out how to make a shock wave. Now that I know how to do this effect, it will take me substantially less time in the future. After all that, It took me two hours to figure out a way to export it without a horrible interlace flicker
