For my next project, I may want to simulate the kinds of lighting found at a modern 'dance/rave/disco'; i.e. Laser lights, LED globes, flashing lights and fast moving spotlights. I have very little experience of such events and such lighting equipment. AFAIK lasers illuminate and dim extremely fast. In terms of frame of video it must just be a case of the laser being either on or off. Perhaps at the other end of the scale are those big searchlights which appear to take over a second to dim.
I have no idea what the technical term for the 'dimming time' is called. Does anyone have knowledge of this; or any charts or lists I can get this information from?
