Moving lights on sets would be great, one can simulate the passage of time with it, or the passing of a vehicle at night.
Also, different types of light sources - a discoball, flashing cop/ambulance lights, etc...

Unless you already have it...? (I've been pleasantly surprised already)

Yep. I'm pretty sure those are in the works. We've talked in the past about dynamic lighting with table lights and spots.

Flashing neons would be great too!

Any kind of focused directional lighting would be a help.
Reptor managed a mock up light box using the small window and it worked really well.
The rest of the stuff would be sweet. I know the team realise that lighting is one of the most important things in film making because they have said this a few times.
Reminders help, bring things further up the list.

Yeah... flashing neon lights for nightclubs, etc, good idea. However, i've seen a few of the F/X programs out there, ParticleIllusion, etc, and wow! They can be added later, to great effect.

Speaking of moving lights, if we get an action/weapon pack, will it be possible to have a spotlight attached to, say, a machine gun? (Of course, the moving part being that the light goes where ever the gun is pointed...) I think it'd look cool on dark sets.

A working flashlight would be very cool too. Especially for horror movies
