LSMaker is a program developed by me and you can create lights saber/laser sword effects with this program. LSSound is an other program, it can be used to put sound effects easily and fast to videos. LSText lets you create flying text, images just like in the movies."Link (Thanks, Fabio!)
LSText will create the famous rolling texts just like every star wars beggining movie.
Works perfectly under WINE (linux).
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
