Afternoon all.

Are there any threads/tutorials on here on how to add Christmas Lights to a short clip? Something like rope lights, or a few flashing coloured lights. It'd be added to a clip of a building.

Hate to say this, but it's tough to say anything more -- it depends on the shot.

You aren't just putting lights into a shot, you may be changing their perspective is the camera moves, which involves some tricky motion tracking. Not to mention that lights emit light (duh), which may light up things in this shot as well.

Oh I totally get that. I think there will be a fairly static shot, and maybe a panning shot....

Every video I've seen so far is how to add lights to text etc, which all look very animated.
