Spot Lights in Motion

I'm working on a commercial for an unfinished furniture - we are doing a strip tease theme. I have the image in motion, but I am having trouble adding spot lights. I want the lights to move around like spot lights on a stage. I'm using Motion 3. Any ideas?

Yes, add lights but make them a 'spot' in the light type parameter.

Push the lights in 3D to the top of the frame, narrow the beam and then apply the Wriggle behavior to the X and Y controls to get the effect you want.

I would second everything Peter said, except for the wiggle. I think you'll likely want the lights to more in a more organized fashion than wiggle allows for. I would apply the oscillate behavior to the X and Y rotations of the lights. By adjusting those oscillations one negative to the other, you can animate the lights in an oval trajectory. That looks more like lights on a dance stage. Change the phase for each light and you'll have all the lights rotating around the stage in a different way.

Thanks for the help. Oscillating seems to be a little smoother, but the wiggle got me started.
