    don't know if it's any help but I remember writing something in adding it to others on some what was it forest fire or something like that a few months ago. Perhaps a search into what I posted or fire might pull up past postings on it.

    Laso a thread on this forum or perhaps hte General Disc one called DIY Flicker Effect.

    Strand 300 has a Flicker FX setting that you can putz with too.

    Perhaps that didn't get carried over from previous consoles. I know the LBX had the flicker option. If there isn't such a thing on the 300, setting it to random with a variety of step times would likely make an adequate replacement.

    do you know if it is possible to export the fx from an lbx to the new console (assuming i have one, or access to one)

    No it isn't. It's an OS level thing.

    Is the effect for the front of a building or inside (i.e. lights and smoke behind the set)?
