Does anyone know how to load a motion file for a lens flare?

I'm looking at the stroke recorder tutorial and want to apply the pressure.mot file to the flare intensity, but really don't know how. Do I load it from within the flare envelope or load it somewhere else and apply it in the envelope?

Thanks for the help!

a motion file is a file containing at least six channels.. sometimes nine.

and envelope contains only one channel. they're not compatible with each other, so here's what i propose you do:

1.) create a null.
2.) go to the graph editor and bring up the null's channels in the bin.
3.) in the Position.X, rightclick and LOAD. select the envelope file. this should load the envelope into the Position.X channel only.
4.) bring the lens flare channel alongside the Null.Position.X
5.) use Channel Follower on the lens flare channel and let it follow the null's channel.
