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!”

Clean Lighting with Element 3D V2
Here are a few experiments created in Element 3D V2 with simple lighting and Ambient Occlusion. In these examples I’m using the Ray Traced AO which is a bit slower but creates very nice results. The other important setting I like to use is called “Lighting Influence” under the Physical Environment. This setting helps blend the […]

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!!!

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.

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!!!

    4 years ago
    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.
