I'm trying to figure out how to take the top segment of the strand of lights above my garage and get them to "talk". What I mean by this is to emanate from the middle of the span out to the left and right at differing widths (or distances) depending on the talking in an audio track I've found. I have no problem if the suggestion is to do it manually - in fact I'd prefer to do it manually because there's a soft piano track under the voiceover that might make any automatic interpretation a bit off. However, I don't know how I'd even do it manually. I could adjust or recreate that portion of my model so that the garage span there is broken into two segments if that helps. The bigger question is how can I make the lights start at an origin point and light in differing lengths but not go off to a full sweep? Not sure I'f I'm explaining it well enough but it's worth a shot. Someone here might know what I'm after. Maybe something like this although this is just from one side stretching across and it looks like it's using the audio as the generator. I'd rather do it manually.
