Pro Presets 2 for Optical Flares

UPDATE: Pro Presets 2, Now available! Click Here

We’ve been actively working on a new volume of advanced Lens Flare presets for Optical Flares and the new product is finally complete. The PRO PRESETS 2 pack includes 50 all new presets, training videos and even AE Project files to jump start your creativity.

January is actually the One year anniversary for Optical Flares and we wanted to show you more amazing possibilities with this powerful Plug-in. This new pack will reignite your projects with a variety of stunning anamorphic, and stylized presets. Each preset features complex objects with dynamic triggers and many are based on real flares from high-end camera lenses.

There will be many new surprises this year and trust me when I say, “We’re not messing around!”

Can you tell us how much the new pack will cost? OF is such a wonderful tool for adding a big-budget look to low-rent productions!

Happy New Year!

    i think is not 4 ver y sadddddddddddddddddd
    January 9th, 2011 @ 12:19 pm
    The first pro presets cost 25.00$ so im guessing about 35$ - 40$ since it says with training and projects.

I use the Optical flares a lot, it's my fav plugin for when I wanna make a scene come alive with some light effects.
Can't wait to see the new presets and tutorials. Would love to see a tutorial where you combine Optical Flares with Sure Target, chasing lights with a 3D cam.
    January 7th, 2011 @ 10:21 am
    I would like that tutorial too!
    January 7th, 2011 @ 11:30 am
    Yes!! I would also like to see a tutorial where you combine Optical Flares with Sure Target, chasing lights with a 3D cam. I've been trying to accomplish this unsuccessfully. Looking forward to the new presets.. your site/tutorials and the tools you've produced have helped me immensely ~ Thanks!
January 6th, 2011 @ 4:40 pm
Wow! Look forward to this big time!

January 6th, 2011 @ 7:04 pm
Could you release it the 12th?
That way it would match with my Birthday and it would be like a present for me!

will this be an update that we download? or do we have to buy this again
January 7th, 2011 @ 10:20 am
Vales madre Andrew Kramer, te dedicas a solo puro vender culero, antes eras cool, con tus videos y todo pero a hora eres una puta barata que solo se dedica a vender. Que te den por el culo Andrew!!!
    January 7th, 2011 @ 3:18 pm
    Hey, de que esperas que viva? Si quieres puedes buscar mucha gente en internet que hace videos, tutoriales o lo que sea, y de pronto te pareceran cool, pero no son profesionales. Andrew trabaja en esto, y no puedes esperar que alguien gaste su vida haciendo tutoriales sin tener algo que le de dinero. En mi opinion Andrew es el mejor en lo que hace, y me parece increible que tambien lanze productos para que otras personas puedan usarlos. Si te molesta, simplemente no sigas visitando el sitio y ve a otro lado donde te gusta lo que hacen, pero no vengas aqui a criticar las razones por las que no te agrada.
January 7th, 2011 @ 10:22 am
That looks cool - but what about a trailer? It's what I look the most forward to see.
January 7th, 2011 @ 10:23 am
Can you give us a teaser of the new products that you've got planned?

"trust me when I say, “We’re not messing around!”"

But I like the tutorials where you're messing around. I only come for the entertaining comments, not to actually learn stuff.

is this pro presets compatible with CS5? Thank youu..
January 9th, 2011 @ 2:28 pm
cant wait :) how much will this cost? or will it be free to ppl who already bought optical flares w/pro presets?
January 9th, 2011 @ 3:45 pm
My question is though, have you written a manual for it yet?
Tutorials are all well and good, but products need written documentation, for which this, a year later, still has nothing.

This community is getting great. I was wondering what if Andrew bring us together for a meeting-party. Everything we need is to give to the meeting-party form and content. Just imagine VCP members from all around the world meet in one place.... to do something))))

Do not take it seriously, I'm just kidding, but that's an idea)))

Anyway Great Thanks to Andrew and all the VCP team!!!
January 10th, 2011 @ 7:54 pm
Love It, nice additional addon to one of my favorite products next to Action Essential 2, it looks better in stills
January 11th, 2011 @ 5:10 pm
Just realized that my Pro presets 1 for optical flares doesn't work...does anybody know why? It isn't appearing in the preset browser
    January 12th, 2011 @ 5:40 am
    What is your OS? Mac or Win?
    January 12th, 2011 @ 5:42 am
    Maybe have you move out the folders from the main position?
