Luminary Glass Overlays | The definitive post-production counterpart to an iconic cinematography technique
Since the beginning, unique glass effects have been a hallmark of Lens Distortions. Luminary is the quintessential example of this signature style.
From delicate to assertive, these glass textures offer you a unique way to complement your subject, accentuate or soften parts of your shot, and add complexity to your film.
This pack contains some unapologetically bold looks for scenes where you’re really seeking to make a statement. But it also contains no shortage of nuanced and intricate elements for adding just a touch of subtle intrigue to your shot.
Luminary is the iconic glass shoot-through style from A to Z.
Luminary now includes 90 glass overlays and is organized into 5 distinct categories to better showcase the diversity of looks.
We’ve created some new clips to make one of the most popular use cases (transitions) easier and added a few previously unreleased overlays to really round out the mix.
As always, we’ve meticulously curated the essential effects based on aesthetic and use case.
Explore the effect categories in Luminary and see some classic use cases in the brand new overview video.
We’ve also some created new tutorials for Final Cut X, Premiere, and After Effects, which can be found below.
