I have about 80 lights i want to randomly flicker, but i also want them to fade up. What would be a good expression to use on the light's intensity channel to let the light be keyframable in terms of a fade up, but the on values would be slightly noisy ?

I tried to use noisy channel but when the curve is set to 0 there are still come moments where the light flickers above 0.

You could keyframe the color up and down and keep noisy channel on the intensity -

DStorm has a better version of noisy channel that can be enveloped.

wow. an envelopable noisy channel! thanks for the tip, Larry. I've often wanted this when too lazy to use the master channel trick.
