After a bit more playing around I see that you can have two or more flares in a comp file but only if you make them from scratch in the file, as opposed to copying them from another file. I've saved the file and will have a look at what happens to the "controls" parameter when I get time. Hopefully then I can do the same in a text editor which will allow me to concatenate the multiple flare files.

I honestly never tested copying and pasting multiple flares in a scene, but i did create multiple flares from scratch.
I will investigate this. It may depend on some naming issue in the macros.
Thanks for pointing this out!

Cheers!

It does. Hint: it's a WSL Console Tip...

Let me know if you can't find it - it's a fairly simple fix, but I won't spoil the ending :)

I'm sure I've seen it. Naming like "Output" or "Input". I thought I had already removed all of those :D
I'll need to check the macros again!

Thanks!!

Did you install the macro/fuse set from reactor?
Can you share your comp?

Thanks @Millolab for these! Looks amazing and great work for making the lens flare tool for Fusion, much appreciated.

I'm having one issue with ml_LFStar macro. If the position is animated very slightly (the flare moves really slow) the Star is not moving smoothly, the movement is really jagged. I did a bit debugging and looks like it's caused by ml_LFStar macro's merge node where 'Filter Method' is set to 'Nearest Neighbor'. I set that to 'Gaussian' and it works fine. It would be nice to be able to change this in the macro itself. I'm using up to date Reactor version of the LFTools.

I bought the preset pack, there're nice. But given how the LFTools set is built, there's no way of saving these presets as, well, presets, instead of standalone comps, is there?

@ELinder I guess you could try using the bins. I did not test them but I guess they could work!

I put them in the Reactor example comps folder, but I thought I'd ask in case I was missing something obvious.
