Technical Details about E3D V2
Now that we have released the first look at Element 3D V2, you can see that this is not a small update to our plug-in. It is a massive overhaul with many big features. So, I thought I would take a little time to answer a few technical questions. NOTE: Pricing information and upgrade paths […]
Announcing Element 3D V2!
It has been a little over 2 years since the release of Element 3D V1 and I still remember it quite vividly. I recall staying up all night before the launch, trying to get everything done. I was nervous and excited.  My son Josh had just been born a week earlier and I was working from home at the time. […]

Great looking Lens flare sets for Nuke, we were wondering what your Stereo support is like and also if you have examples of non-anamorphic flares?
Thanks

I always feel mildly insignificant whenever 'the Nuke kids' chime in. Like my After Effects equipment just isn't big enough to satisfy a VFX supervisor's needs. Should I console myself in the opinion that 'it's what you do with it that matters' or do you think I might be on to something? Am I the only one that feels this way?

    I felt the way you do now, so I switched to Nuke. While I have no regrets, Nuke is very expensive, and I am still paying it off. I really do not think you need to worry about switching to Nuke, or ever thinking like AE is not up for the job.

    AE is very powerful, and is an essential tool to myself (A Nuke user). The only reason why I would suggest switching from AE to Nuke, is if your workflow with AE as your compositor is just not working anymore. If it is handling what you shove at it, and I am pretty sure it is, stick with AE and keep learning it.

    I use both programs daily. But I don't think you can compare them really. Because they're ment for two different things:

    AE = High end Motion Graphics.

    Nuke = High end compositing (and not to forget the wonderful 32 bit float and true 3d space).

Looks great! Any chance of the AE version getting the new lens textures and sprites? I really dig the new "spark" lens element. Or will that be 2.0?

Optical Flares is really amazing and unbelievable powerful.
