Lighting plugin to simulate flashing club lights or a television screen?

Continuing the discussion from Recommended Lighting plugin to simulate flashing club lights or a television screen off-camera?:

Hi, i created a strobe effect in this post using S_Flicker Strobe effect?
I just tried BCC Spotlight to see if i could make it flash, but first i wanted the light Target to pan across the screen
Tracked Target in Mocha

but the Target doesn’t move back on the timeline? :thinking:

I’d suggest using either BCC FIlm Damage or BCC Video Glitch - both of these filters include a light flicker group so just disable the other options and you should be able to tweak the look to taste. Isolating the effect to a portion of the screen, whether that’s static or animated, can be done using the integrated Mocha option.

Hi, so i tracked the Target, does that mean the Target should move across the screen?

Tracking the spotlight target should work as expected - I’ll take a look and share my findings.

Thanks, my fault i guess, this wasn’t tracking anything, i just wanted the Target to pan across so i created a keyframe each end of the timeline & the spline either side of the screen & let it track across,
just tried it tracking my saw & it worked as expected,
I guess it needs to be actually tracking something,

Sounds good - thanks for the update!
