Would be good if you describe how you "have this under control".
There are people who will search for the solution in similar case and the only think they will find will be that someone "has this under control".
I personally know how to achieve this, but some people don't.
The answers are useful not only for those who ask, but for everybody.

I usually finish my threads with the solution if I find it. I needed to track flares onto lots of white dots and figured how to do it with optical flares, though it didnt work too well and some of the flares were off.

I actually still need to find out how to do this, so if you know a way would appreciate the help :)

Please be more specific about what you need:
lights (which might require something like Trapcode Lux)...
lens flares...
or something entirely different.
Please describe what you see in your mind's eye.

Hey Dave,

I basically have lots of slow moving small white dots that fade in from black and move closer towards the screen. I need to add subtle flares to each of these lights.

The way I was thinking was to track a light to each dot and then just apply the flare to the light. Though not even sure how likely that sounds as I am really an AE novice.

I tried the luminance option in Optical flares, though this tracked flares onto the dots instantly, quite a few were off track.

so I'm back to square one :\
