I need to model and animate fairlights. I want to create letters, “HA” for example, and make them flashing like fairlights.
I’m experimented a bit with Blender but I’m pretty much a newbie.
Can anybody help me with this, give me tips or give me a start because I don’t know how to start with this.
Here is what I mean. A lot of lights flashing.http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3649/3427324414_71e2784d84.jpg

Welcome to the forums!

As for your question, I think animated halos might do the trick.

I would model the actual lights with a translucency shader. Then you could place lamps inside with the appropriate color and just animate the brightness. It sounds like you’ll have a lot of these so I would keep raytracing for those lamps off.

Hope this works!
