Optical Flare - Luminance NOT working

Postby K-Mike on 07/29/2016, 9:37 am

Hi all,

the simple thing that i did so often does not work anymore!

when i want OF to use a luminance map it does not work! Everything is white!
When I reduce the the Brightness and Scale down to "5" i see the the flare originates in the center of the image.

- I tried it with an example scene
- i even tried the steps Andrew did in his video.
- reinstalled plugin

--> Source Type "Luminance"
--> Source Layer "my luminance layer"

Grrr >-||

It HAS TO BE a precomposition you want to track. Not just luminance in a layer!
