    Hi

    Basically I have a drawing of some metal bars that I want to pan across, but while Im panning across Id quite like to see the light of the sun behind them glimmering past. Im not quite sure the best to explain this. You know the way you get a kind of lens flare when the sun appears and then disappears behind a bar or a person?

    If anyone can understand what I mean Id really appreciate some help!

    Thanks

    Dan

    Why not just use a lens flare and keyframe the brightness down for when it goes behind a bar?
