Express your inner J.J. Abrams without having to buy 3rd Party Plugins. In this After Effects tutorial, create custom lens flares without any plugins. SonduckFilm will teach you how to create amazing lens flares within After Effects without Optical Flares or Knoll Light Factory. Lens flares are used frequently within motion graphic projects to enhance the visuals and make certain elements pop. It can be hard to use the standard Adobe After Effects lens flares with their default settings. Buying third-party plugins can be tempting, however after watching this tutorial, you will be able to create awesome lens flares with the built-in effects.
