I"ve seen NPC emperors do it though... although... that may be the absorb effect of Meteor... >.>

Weiss Hikari- literally "White Light"

I've heard people talking about M-canceling a lot. Is it the same as EX canceling or Dodge canceling or is it something else entirely?
I can't seem to find it anywhere, but what are the specifics of Return Dodge Cancelling, and Turn Dodge Cancelling?
From what I've been able to grasp, it is that:
Forward Dodge Cancel (FDC): Pressing up and using dodge cancel, useful tool for Zidane: Most anything (Incomplete) -> Tempest
Return Dodge Cancel (RDC): Pressing down while starting the dodge, and as it executes, quickly pressing up. Useful for a myriad of combos, such as Tempest Infinite for maximum damage, and near essential for Multi-hit -> Extra Slice -> RDC -> Turbo Hit -> Extra Lunge/Guiding Swipe. (Also works Starting left/right and then correcting with right/left respectively, I think?)
I've also notice the Multi-hit -> Extra Slice -> RDC -> Turbo Hit -> Extra Lunge/Guiding Swipe combo has worked with FDC as well.
What I don't understand how to do is turn dodge cancelling (TDC), I can never seem to get it right? Is is Dodging pressing left or right, and then pressing up?
And then my final question is, what does the camera angle do to these various dodge cancels?
I've noticed that it can ruin moves that require you to push towards or away from an enemy (Which, it would have made more sense if it were just up/down like the other)
i heard something about block dashing earlier in another thread...
can someone shed some light on that area for me please.
Block Dashing is achieved by pressing R and then triangle in very quick succession. Just practice it a bit. Sometimes I still screw up and end up in a block for a while.
thanks, but how is that useful?
It's sorta faster than waiting for the end-of-dash animation to finish then dashing again. Though if you mess up the block-dash you just end up waiting even longer.
It's also good for mind games and having your enemy mis-time their blocks.
