Can you post an example?

I have a free tutorial on creating lighting in videos with lights in Motion.

OK, that is the car actually doing that itself. You want to know if there is a trick that will fake this in post-prodution? Of course. You create a mask over the lights in Motion 5), track the mask to follow the car movement (or manually keyframe it). Then you apply a Oscillator behavior parameter to the Mask's Opacity.
