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.

Overview

The Essential Library

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

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.

Deliberately Understated

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.

5 Distinct Categories

70 Effects Total

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.
