New Product Preview: Optical Flares

UPDATE: Product Now Available!

Mysterious things have been brewing behind the scenes at Video Copilot.
Dark things. Well actually bright things.

Drum roll please… I’m very excited to announce our new plug-in Optical Flares. We are still very much in development but I wanted to give you a small taste of what to expect. Optical Flares is a next-generation plug-in for creating realistic lens flares and reinvent the look of digital lens flares beyond perfect geometric shapes to natural organic light.

This plug-in already has over 50,000 lines of code but I want to show you 1 small feature.

I know there are many questions but please hold on to your questions since we will be releasing more information next month that should help clarify what this is all about. We don’t have a release date yet but it will be sometime after October, possibly November. The price will be $139.95 but I’d rather talk about that when I show you all of the amazing features!

At first, they seemed cool enough but after accidentally adding shape layers to my comps, instead of masks, I lashed […]
