I made some experiment on Adv.Light.FX. However I couldn't achive a stable end-frame on the spooky spider thing, here are some settings and results.
They are causes different FX depengin on each other.

Core Drain [0%] - High Density of lines, [100%] - Low Density,

Turbulence [1] - Almost straight lines (Road map like), [2-10] - Messy Lines (City map like),

Decay [3] - Shows just the origin point and nearest light, [0,01] - Shows the whole lightning to the end point,

Complexity [1] - From point to point lines, [5] - From point to every direction, large radius, [10] - From point to every direction, very small radius,

Min.Fork.Distance (Inverted by Core Drain) [8] - High density lines, [100-700] - Still high density, [800] - Lower density lines,

Forking [0%-49%] - One line or few ( Road map like ), [50%-100%] - From one line to high density lines ( City map like ),

Core Radius [0] - Low opacity, [1] - Normal, [2-3+] - Brighter Lines,

and in the end I achived a Square-like result with these settings:
Conduct.3.,C.Radius.4.,Complex.3.,Turb.3.,Min.Fork.Dist.800.

Still have the "jumping issue", where the animated lighting switches it's position back-and-forth, like real lightning (looks like a re-draw effect) - but I want to avoid it in this case.

Hi, Just what i was looking for but when I copy the Advanced Lightning and paste it to the Grid layer (Alpha Obstacle part of the video) I cannot move around the text it remains fixed to it, same with the duplicates of it. I have tried to find a way around this but no luck! Could you enlighten me please?

Use the Origin and Direction points to adjust position. The moving of the layer will move the whole system (FX+Text) together. And don't forget to select a preffered point on the timeline (Animated decay must be on low amount.)
