Hello


I am working with BCC 5 and after effects cs3. I have a clip and I show an object and a few seconds I would like to have the BCC spotlight suddenly appear on the object like it had just been turned on.

I have gotten the spotlight where I want it but how to use BCC and AE to get it appear a few seconds into the clip?

Hi,

All you need do is animate the intensity of the light so that it is zero when you want the light to be off and a value above zero when you want it to be visible.

I hope this helps.

Peter.
