New Video Effects | Introducing Classic Light Hits and Modern Light Hits

Light is the muse. The ultimate inspiration and the elusive substance. We demand its presence with the flip of a switch and summit mountains to see it from a different perspective.

As visual creatives, we all obsess over light. At Lens Distortions, we’ve developed two libraries to make it more available in post for today’s filmmakers, editors, and VFX artists.

Introducing Classic Light Hits and Modern Light Hits.

Classic Light Hits

Classic Light Hits is soft, warm, and natural… the essential library of flares every filmmaker should own.

Whether you make cinematic commercials, narrative projects, or wedding films, you’ll love having the ability to splash a bit of light into frame to add that extra something.

Overview

Deliberately Understated

If you’re familiar with our original Light Hits pack, you know these are not your stereotypical, over-the-top lens flares. Each Light Hit is shot in-camera and designed to be subtle, with a balance between rich tones and nuanced detail.

All 70 effects in this pack are brand new and are surprisingly easy to use in a wide range of projects because of their organic movement and softness.

A Curated Library

Classic Light Hits is made up of only the best and most useful effects. It is organized into 5 categories based on style and use case — allowing you to easily find just the right clip.

01 Quick

Grab attention and create a sense of urgency with the clips in the Quick folder. These also work great as transition elements between cuts or speed-ramped shots.

02 Slow

With silky smooth motion, this category contains effects that linger a bit longer, giving you lots of flexibility to fade in and out, manipulate their speed, or use them to cover longer sections of video.

03 Pan

These effects are made to pair with your sweeping drone shots or fast-paced camera moves and are some of the most versatile effects in the library.

04 Pulse

Simple, slow movement of light that comes in and out, giving you just a bit more complexity than the clips in the Slow folder.

05 Subtle

Deliberately understated textures you can use to add a bit more organic character to a shot.

Modern Light Hits

Modern Light Hits is an original library of sleek, textured lens flares designed to take the cinematic tone of your film to the next level. While these effects are bolder than Classic Light Hits, they still show the perfect amount of restraint compared to typical Hollywood flares.

Intriguing Textures

Any kind of light brightens a scene… but Modern Light Hits also adds texture. Whether you’re looking to dress up some VFX shots or add a bit of complexity to a minimal shot, these flares are great for creating intrigue.

The library contains 90 effects captured on unique lenses, giving you chromatic detail and alluring blue hues.

A Curated Library

As always, we chose to include only the best and most useful effects in this library. Modern Light Hits is organized into 6 categories based on style and use case to make clip selection easy.

01 Quick

Grab attention and create a sense of urgency with the clips in the Quick folder. These also work great as transition elements between cuts or speed-ramped shots.

02 Slow

With silky smooth motion, this category contains effects that linger a bit longer, giving you lots of flexibility to fade in and out, manipulate their speed, or use them to cover longer sections of video.

03 Pan

These effects are made to pair with your sweeping drone shots or fast-paced camera moves and are some of the most versatile effects in the library.

04 Pulse

Simple, slow movement of light that comes in and out, giving you just a bit more complexity than the clips in the Slow folder.

05 Flicker

Fast and urgent, these effects give you rapid pops of light that grab attention and indicate speed.

06 Subtle

Deliberately understated textures you can use to add a bit more organic character to a shot.
