In this tutorial EJ Hassenfratz explains a couple very simple ways that you can effect Light Objects intensity in Cinema 4D using effectors. He shows you techniques you can use to “turn on/off” lights as well as a gradual light fade on/off. He also goes over another use for this method to create a noise meter animation where meter bars light up and glow, all controlled with an effector. Last he shows how to use a combination of Cappucino & Mograph to animate the noise meter to look like it’s reacting to crowd noise and how to sync it with a shaking camera as shown in the example.

If you pay a close attention to their work-in-progress, you’ll notice Cinema 4D in the background. It’s always interesting to see the application used in fields other than television or advertising.
