I'm trying to use Optical Flares on an animated light I extracted from a C4D scene vie Cineware, but it won't line up properly. The extracted light doesn't match its original position in the C4D scene & the Optical Flare doesn't appear on the extracted light, but is also slightly off.
The light in the C4D scene was animated along a spline (it's for a light stream gag), so I had to bake the position keyframes.
I remember having this issue before with some car headlights (where they were parented to the car). Last time I bypassed by using the old Maxon connection plugin, but I'm having trouble installing it on CC 2015.
Any advice very much appreciated. I'm happy to provide more detail if helpful. As usual there is a reality-deprived client imposed deadline breathing down my neck. Help!!
