I have a project where my camera flies through to some footage. I want my 3d optical flare to be by the footage but it wont go past 30000 in z space to reach my footage.

Does anyone have a solution for this?

Linking 3d optical flares to where your camera is seems to be a problem

You should be able to position a Light in 3d space and then Track that Light with Optical Flares. A work around is to split your animation in several compositions and build transitions that cam make the travel feel seamless (ex- have a footage frame pass right in front of camera and filling the whole screen..)
