I created this 2 AE ligths. The AE-spot is using Trapcode Lux to make the cone ligth. ┬┐How to link the two ligths please?

see the picture of the 2 ligths:

I try this expression in Position but dot not work
L = thisComp.layer("Ligt 1");
LCP = L.toComp([0,0,0]);
LLP = thisLayer.fromComp(LCP);

I've never had the chance to play with Lux, but I can't help but think there's an effect setting for light position. Just activate an expression for it, and pick-whip it to the light layer's position.

I'm starting to think you're messing things up.

Which lights are you trying to link? The two that you created in AE?... just shift parent one to another. As you would any other layer.

Lux, assuming you applied it to a solid the same size of your composition, should automaticaly place the fake volumetric light at the appropriate light's position.
