Could some one with knowledge help refresh my memory? The FX I'm interested in are form the original trilogy when ever a ship jumped into lightship as shown in the image at the top of this article in Weekend Gamer http://weekendgamer.wordpress.com/2007/08/18/germans-break-the-speed-of-light/

I remember some thing vary vague about this, the use of a high-speed camera but that's about it! If you know in detail about how this effect was executed I would be grateful the more technical information the better as I have a life long interest in the FX's techniques in use before CGI, which if used correctly can still be used today.

Regards to you.
