i wouldn't recommend rendering out to AVI in Maya, you would be better off rendering an image sequence and then taking that into another app like After Effects and rendering it out to AVI from there, also it would be better to do the lens flair ect in post too.

Also take a look at this free tutorial

Render them out using a software render (just the light effects) and then comp them together.
