Description:

I was trying to find a way to make nice lightning for a project I'm working on, and it occurred to me that I could use animated displacement modifiers.

Update: I added an armature and a couple drivers to make the lightning always stay between the Source and Terminal objects (which are now empties).

The .blend also includes a compositing setup I used to render it.
