I got a sequence of clips with cables and pipes. And I need to find a way to illustrate that there are energy flowing through the cables and pipes. Do you have any good idea of how to illustrate this? I think it could be solved with light strikes/trails. Any idea of how to make those trails?

Best, Stig

There are dozens of ways to do light trails. Try the Vegas effect or Stroke and then add some Glow.
