    After effects is so expensive, FXHome can do it for like $200, and I think (could be wrong) Premiere Elements can do it. If you get elements (if it can do it) get V7, NOT V4, 7 can handle AVCHD while 4 cannot (bad luck for me) I only shoot in AVCHD.
    Here's a pic (or 2) of the start of a PVC Saber I made for like $2.00. 1" inner diameter so you can get a stunt blade and either paint 1 blue and the other green (easier to edit) or what ever.
    I know that my sabers need knobs and weathering, and will do that, but for video, perfection is not necessary, only for display.
    I also made a staff for my Jedi Security officer.

    As for Sound FX, google 'em and DL, then mix them in post process.
    For good tips on editing, look on youtube and look up videomaker (the magazine) they offer tons of free advise or indymogule, lots of effects tutorials, like kill bill eyeball pull etc.

    $2? That looks pretty good! I like it

    BTW adonian, Ultra Sabers is awesome. I ordered a phantom double bladed saber from them for sparring/practicing. Red of course Gotta live up to Darth Maul heh.
