Light sabers or beam swords, whatever you want to call them take a long time to make.
You are layering the four points frame by frame. There are 29.97 frames a second.
Think it's a piece of cake? You have to mask in areas where the light is on the character to make it look 3D. After all, you are working with 2D frames.
Yo also need to pull or push in the end of the tilt and hilt to make it more 3D
Go here to see how they do it!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wDCn9HSdf0I
I don't know what they are using but I know another program. What is it? Not telling
