After Effect Newbie here!
I've looked around the web for an tutorial on how to create the effect of light's reflection flickering/glowing on water surfaces but no avai.
This is the effect I looking for:
(star at 1m 9s, idk why the forum not letting it work..)
Basically I'm trying to recreate the background scene including the moving glowing light moving (vehicles)
Ive been trying to use lense flare/optical flare with wiggles/flicker control but they seem bit too bright or doesnt have this blur effect that water gives.

any help is greatly appreciated!!
thanks in advance!
