Hi NickFury87, you need to place the light on its own Layer in Build mode.

Then show/hide the layer in your video clip using the Show/Hide Layers effects.

Oki, done!

Thank you Morten!

But, is it possible to switch on light gradually?

Unfortunately not.

If you have access to a 3rd party video editor, I recommend that you render two versions of your clip (one with the lights turned on, and one with the lights turned off).

Make sure you render the 2 versions of your clip as image sequences (PNG format = best quality and the lowest file size).

Then fade between the 2 clips in the video editor to make it look like the lights are fading in.
