I have a comp with many lights using Trapcode Lux, but the light itself isn't originating from where my light source is? I've been messing with this for a while and can't figure out why they are offset from one another. Here's a picture of what I'm talking about:

Picture 4

As you can see, the lights on the left are working fine, but the selected light is far away from the light source.

Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

I don't know how lux works, but the lights on the left seem to be almost directly at the base of the blue area, while the light on the right is some distance away. Does moving the light closer to the blue area help at all?

No, I've moved the light many times and regardless of whether it is closer or further from the giant #5, the lighting effect is significantly offset from the lighting source.

Have you tried removing Lux and reapplying the effect?
