Cloned lights in random colours

Hi All,


Is it possible to have random colours (or a specific colour range) applied to a spot light that is inside a cloner?


I can do this with objects but cant see a way to do it with lights so not sure if it is possible.

Any help or ideas appreciated as I am trying to colour about 100 lights so I want to avoid doing them individually.


Thanks

So far, the only way I found was to use an operator

Thanks for the tip Stephen.

I have not used operators before but managed to get it working after taking a look at your setup.

What are you using the "Root" node for? I can get things working with just the first node.

Is there a way that you know of to have the randomized colors sit within a range? I would like to randomize throughout a pre chosen range of colors so I can avoid certain colors that I dont want appearing.


Thanks
