We’ve added three new packs to our lineup of natural video effects with the discriminating filmmaker and VFX artist in mind.
Curation is a hallmark of all Lens Distortions products. We focus on providing only the best and desired variations of each effect. With Dust and Rain, the 25 effects in each respective pack will cover most any use case. While Fog II delivers 50 distinct variations organized in four categories to cover the nuances actual fog and haze exhibit.
Other times, you’re creating a world from scratch. From a title sequence that needs background texture to a complex composite that needs layers of detail, these natural overlays are just the right ingredients in the hands of an experienced editor.
Layering multiple effects from the same pack can create interesting depth and dimension. For example, you could use a few Fog II clips to put a solid blanket of haze in the background and some wispy smoke trails in the foreground, creating a complex environment around your subject.
Nature often delivers fog and rain together in real life, why not do the same in post? After all, the goal is to create a realistic and visceral scene. Fog II actually helps naturally blend the Rain effects into your shots.
Our enduring Light Hits pack has been a favorite among Lens Distortions users since its launch. Light Hits offers soft, natural bursts of sunlight. Since dust generally is visible in the glow of light, pairing Light Hits with the new Dust pack and a little editing know-how will yield some pretty interesting visuals.
