Light Hits for Video | More versatile than ever before

Light Hits, our optically captured lens flare pack for video, has been one of our most popular products since it was released in 2015. Filmmakers love how easily they can add depth to a shot or make a cut more dynamic. Each overlay is created by optically capturing actual sunlight in-camera, which provides an authentic look that simply can’t be recreated digitally.

Our original 30 overlays were intended to be very subtle and simple, but a lot of you have been asking for more dramatic Light Hits that can help you achieve bolder looks.

We’re pleased to announce an updated pack that preserves the original 30 overlays and adds an additional 30 with even more variation.

You’ll find many of these added clips to be much more striking and chromatically detailed yet still refined enough to blend tastefully with the existing light in your shots. With 60 natural lens flares to choose from, you’ll have plenty of options to help dial in the look of your project.
