A dynamic lens-flare set up . . . (file attached below) . . . for games, title sequences and, of course, large alien motherships coming to destroy the earth with their giant otherworldly laser cannons.

Two ways to control it - double click the main control (the light source) and chose either 'move by hand' or 'automatic move', 'move by hand' is basic drag it around with your finger/mouse and 'automatic move' is a simple pseudo-random movement (just to demo the flare moving) - but obviously if you wanted to use the lens flare in your SuperSpaceDeathWarriors™ game you'd dump both these controls and constrain the main control to a light source (the Sun, a rocket, missile, explosion . . . etc etc)

Flick the video over to 720p as you can't see the subtle details at the default 360p.
