Red Giant Knoll Light Factory v2.7 | 35.7 MB
Created by John Knoll, co-author of Adobe Photoshop and Visual Effects Supervisor at Industrial Light + Magic, Knoll Light Factory is a top selling After Effects plug-in. Used by thousands of graphic professionals, Knoll Light Factory simulates reflections from a very bright light source as seen in a camera lens. Real-world examples range from enhancing the glow in Terminator eye to adding a magical effect to adding sparkle to your next picture.
Custom Lens Editor
Build your own flares or edit a preset with the custom lens editor. Choose from elements such as StarFilter, Ellipse, or PhotonSpikeBall, and control each element's position, color, scale, thickness, angle, and width. You also get pinpoint control over brightness, scale and color of the lens as a whole.
70 powerful presets
Use the same presets that the pros turn to every day for sports events and major motion pictures. Presets include Desert Sun, Arc Welder, Generic Panavision, Spikey Glow, Pv1 (for exploding stars), RedLaser, RockConcert, Omnimax (a flare seen on IMAX projection), or Distant Quantum (the original photon torpedo).
Flares can be obscured by objects (cars, enemy spacecraft) that come between them and the viewer. The auto-track feature tracks specific points in an existing alpha channel, making flare location a snap. The integrated Knoll Unmult tool generates alphas, making it easier to include lights and flares in complex composites.
