I'm trying to fake some grid lights like in a stadium, but the actual position where the flares are appearing is different from the position where the lights are, since the camera is animated there's a weird parallax happening between the flares and the poles that are supposed to be holding them.

The settings on my Optical Flares plug in are set to track lights and I disabled 3d perspective, if I enable it back all I get is more intense flares, but the position stays the same.

Please see attached to better understand what I'm talking about.





Any guidance will be greatly appreciated.
David.

Is the solid layer that the flares effect is on the same size as your comp?
