Hi, i am using adobe aftereffects to try and create a movie that will be shown next year for a class gathering. I am trying to create a saber battle. the issue i have is that the saber rotoscoping is intensely time consuming for a video which is 10 minutes long, which is what i am trying to create. therefore i downloaded and used for a 15 second (a 1 hour task...) video Andrew Kramer's saber preset. this made the task easier, but it looked unrealistic compared to many other videos ive seen, such as ryan vs. dorkman.
What is the most effective saber method?
also, is aftereffects the most effective editing program for sabers or should i use vegas pro?
