Can somebody please tell me how i can make the built in fireworks in maya give off light to the surrounding objects? I have a dark room and i want the fireworks to explode and show the objects shimmering with the exploding light from the fireworks, and then go back into blackness when the fireworks have finished exploding....I hope somebody knows what im talking about and can help me here, im dying for a solution. Any and all help is appreicated. Thanks

Render your fireworks animation, then use it as an animated texture of a distant light.
Some post effect - gaussian blur for example - on the fireworks animation could be usefull.
