Those are ridiculously brilliant! Even without access to the presets, the demo video on by itself will do a great service for the Fusion community.

Now, finally, there are ready!

i decide to not give them away for free, but ask for a little price. some time and work went into the creation

if you decide this is something for you, go here:

https://gum.co/FuFlares
This is a collection of 20 lens flares for BMD Fusion (8 and above).

I tried to build some nice looking, quiet realistic flares which can be used in your everyday projects. But not every preset will work nicely with every background.

All presets are 100% procedural, resolution independent and native fusion tools*.
Because everything is procedural it means things can be slow, there are several dozens of nodes used for every preset. Even some calculation heavy ones like multiple blurs.

All presets are made to work best in a linear color workflow! Use a viewer LUT and correct footage settings to get the desired result
The flares take the image format settings (size and bit depth) from your comp. go to "file-preferences->format" to set them according to you needs. i strongly suggest to work in at least 16-bit integer to avoid banding or other artifacts.

the occlusion map will turn off the flare if the value of the image is higher then 0.05 on the flare position
the dirt map will be added in the brighter parts of the flare. you can simulate some lens dirt which will be only visible when hit by light. An procedural example of a dirt image can be found in the "LensDirt.comp"
which comes with this package. You can also use any other image you like.
You can adjust the strength of the dirt wit the "dirt intensity" slider. i added a luma mask in the macros and the slider changes the density of the mask.




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
INSTALL:
Copy the files from the "Macro" folder to you FUSION macro folder
Copy the files from the "Fuses" folder to you FUSION fuses folder
(re)start Fusion

Now you can load the flares through "(add) tools -> macro -> flares -> ..."
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please let me know if you made something nice with them.
mv@empty98.de

Best,
Michael



(*The set contains some fuses and macros which build the flares.)

Thanks goes to Stefan Ihringer, Blazje Floch, Roman Fedotov for inital coding of the fuses

thanks Michael, flares are realy nice :)
Definitely will find some use of them.
I found few glitches (when scaled down they show croped planes), but anyway they are realy good;)

The end of the year is coming fast and i thought its time to give you some update on how things went with this experiment of selling fusion templates.

it went good! i sold some copies of it and still have some sales every month. i didnt get rich with it but it seems there is a market for paid fusion templates!
i hope this information encourage you to make some products by yourself and enrich the fusion market.
