The Video Copilot Optical Flares Plug-in enables you to design and animate realistic lens flares in After Effects, and comes with 60 built-in, real lens inspired presets and tutorials (over 90 min). It is suitable for use in applications such as 3D animation, motion graphics, commercials, and music videos. You can also use it for, graphic transitions, compositing, special effects, and combine it with particle effects.

Equipped with an intuitive design interface, the Optical Flares Plug-in comes with 12 unique lens objects and 50 custom lens objects, and allows you to rename and rearrange them. The interface also features integrated copy-paste function, and supports duplicate objects and undo/redo. It also features a large pop-out preview window and can show BG in preview window.

The Optical Flares Plug-in incorporates 3D lens flares with AE lights, live visual preset library, and dynamic triggering of animations. In addition to chromatic aberration, it supports real textures and up to 32 bpc color. The preset browser allows you to share and swap presets, and save all settings in a single place. You can also save and reuse individual objects, and expand and build new presets.

Using the Optical Flares Plug-in, you can add final touches to motion graphics, realism to your virtual sets, and flares to live action footage. It allows you to simulate concert or stadium lighting, visible atmosphere with lighting, and bright lights in your scenes. You can also build a virtual light array for music videos and blend 3D animations. In addition to support for fake volumetric lighting, the plug-in enables you to draw focus to a product or graphic, and accentuate highlights or contours.
