Lights and Switches

How do I animate the lights flickering on and off? Or Basiaclly controlling the lights?

With your mouse over the light controls hit the ā€œIā€ key. You can set different lighting keyframes such as RGB and energy.

Or, open an IPO window with the lamp selected. Set the IPO type to Lamp then draw a randomly cycling curve (Ctrl-LMB) in the Energy channel. Set the curve to constant for instant on-offs (T-key>constant). You could just draw a curve across a selection of frames (remember your frame rate for timing) then set the Extrapolation Mode to Cyclic to have the flicker repeat endlessly.

Thank you guys, i will give it a try

Holy cow!! Thats so cool! Thanks for that info!
