They say the sequel is never as good as the original. In this case, I hope that’s not true.
Radiance 2.0 comes with 10 higher quality, more realistic lens flares created entirely in HitFilm. This time around I utilized the Gleam and Bilateral Blur effects to get a softer, more volumetric look to the flares. I also decided to keep them as composite shots for ease of use, and referenced real anamorphic lights when creating them. The zip download comes with a how-to PDF to help you get started quickly.
- HitFilm 3 Express users: you must have purchased the Pro Light Flares pack
- HitFilm 4 Express comes with Light Flares but it is recommended you purchase the Atmospheric Lighting pack ($25) for the Gleam effect
Enjoy, and let me know if you have any questions!
