Light It Up with 3D Lens Flares, Glitters, and Volumetric Lighting VFX
Tap BCC Stage Light to simulate production lights, projectors, or stage lighting where your viewer can see light beams emanating from powerful light sources. Instantly recreate an atmosphere of a stage performance, a night scene, or a rock club. Or simply add light beams to the headlights of a car. Offering integration with After Effects' camera and lighting system, BCC Lens Flare 3D simulates a lens flare - streaks and spots of light on film caused by light bouncing inside a camera lens. Composite the lens flare over a source image or generate a completely synthetic image. Create cinematic looks, stylish broadcast design elements, and beautiful transitions. Make your video sparkle with BCC Glitter, BCC Glare, and BCC Glint and produce stunning volumetric lighting effects with the BCC Rays filters.
