Default Simple Animation help..

Hiya,
I'm working out of my book at the moment and am playing around with simple objects and effects, trying to Animate some 'lightning' - How do I get the lighning to turn off? as it plays for the entire sequence. The book is a bit unclear - I wondered if you could explain it in simple terms so I can re-check what I have done...

Regards Scraggy

You can just keyframe its intensity, in the attributes... 0 would be off and 1 would be high

Thanks - I have it - I think I had gone wrong in the "Parenting"

Its still hard though, I have 2 points left - any suggestion on spending them on Anim basics??... Although I think I will play around awhile first because I have the rigging one by Mike to complete yet... I may just play with my "Bouncing balls" yet awhile

Thanks Scraggy
