Hey guys, I was finally able to put toghether this preset pack.
It took quite a while.


(sadly YouTube destroyed the quality)....

I'm very happy with the result and proud to share it.
This is my first sale on Gumroad. Keep in mind that you're not paying only for the presets... but also helping the development of LFTools.
Here the link!

Thanks for the support!

Cheers,

Emilio.

Wow looks amazing. So There is a link to get your preset pack, but what about the macro itself?
Would love to see how this works with 3D assets; connecting the flare centre to geometry? One of the drawbacks of 2D lens flares is always how they don't generally appear or disappear at the edge of a frame realistically. Would be good to know how your tool works with that scenario.

Thanks @andromeda_girl !
The macro set is on Reactor. Please watch the quick tutorial I linked first. For 3D assets you’ll need to work with a Locator. For occlusion you’ll need to use a probe modifier. I am working on a global scale/brightness control... it’s something for v 2.0. I’m also working on some dynamic element that reacts on the edge, but it’s harder then I thought. Anyway, please test the macros and let me know your thoughts. Any feedback is more than welcome!

Cheers!

Ah okay great. Hadn't caught onto that. I'll update reactor and play a while :)

This is quite simply incredible. Great demo video as well. We can now create lens flares that J.J. Abrams would be proud of! Really we can!

Thanks so much.

Maybe I should do a v2 preset pack?
If you happen to have footage of real lens flare it would be great if you could somehow share it! :)

here an example of a lens flare recreated from footage.
