Boris Lens Flare Unit

Boris FX has released the Continuum Lens Flare Unit, a new plug-in for Adobe CS3 and CS4, as well as Apple's Final Cut Studio 2. The program simulates the streaks and spots of light that end up on film due to reflections inside of a camera lens. Flares can be added either to a source image, or else a completely synthetic creation. Special filters are provided, meanwhile, which allow users to create a variety of effects.

The pack includes Lens Flare, for streamlined creation of simple flares, and Lens Flare Advanced, which allows more adjustment of variables for output control. The Continuum Lens Flare Unit is available for Mac or Windows, and costs $100.

    we spend thousands of dollars on devices to prevent lens flares, on optics that don't get lens flares, only to add them again in post production. Never makes sense to me.
