Blinking lights in Christmas Tree
show user profile  ominilight2010
Hi All

I am doing a Christmas scene in 3dsmax. In the scene I have placed a pine tree also. My client needs blinking lights in that tree. Can anyone share some tutorials on how to do a realistic blinking light effects in 3dsmax.

What am looking is a same kind of effect which we can see when decorative lights are switched on.

Advance thanks.

Do you just want them blinking on and off over time, with an offset so they blink in patterns or at different times?

I need them blink on and off at different times. Also it will be helpful if you are sharing how to make it blink in pattern.

This script will do that. I haven't looked at it for over a decade, no idea if it works with current versions of Max. I think this was the first script I ever published.
