    as said before just make the animation one frame but actually finding the animation is a bit tricky

    the game uses 5 different ones: xms_coloredlights_anim, xms_coloredlights_blue_anim, xms_coloredlights_white_anim for unbox festives, theyre located in materials/models/player/items/heavy (i know, heavy)
    game uses festive_lights_red and festive_lights_blue for festivized weapons theyre in materials/models/weapons/c_items

    theres also a festive_lights_white(iirc) in c_items that does nothing, i think its was used for the backpack render of the festive stickybomb launcher or something, editing it doesnt do anything.               or maybe they planned on a white festivizer but that went nowhere

    im sure you know how to use gcfscape vtfedit and photoshop so you can figure out the rest

    Yes, just make the festive and festivizer texture 1 frame, with it being all the lights on.
