Lightning Effect

I created two spheres as a point of contact as the lightning needs some objects to bounce off.

Highlight both spheres and click Effects -> Lightning, hidden under the FX setting on the top left.

A lightning bolt should appear connected to both spheres.

In my animation, I hid the spheres off screen when rendering to give off the effect that lightning is moving on its own.
