Ya, but even the basic anims have graphical glitches like that. At least your own saber can't damage you.
And its not noticeable in-game.
And yep, I'll be releasing these as a developement tool along with all the other anims so that mod makers can easily add them in. OJP wil have them for sure, and Movie Battles might. And if OJP has it anyone can just port the code into a basic mod. Except Admin mods. They'd need client side changes to utilize the new anims.
And I use 3d studio Max 4.2 along with character studio.
