Creation Lens Flares

With the Creation Lens Flares template, anyone with Adobe After Effects can make realistic lens flare effects without the use of plugins! Included in this free download are 50 pre-designed, customizable lens fares. Or, easily copy and paste individual lens flare elements together to create the perfect lens flare for your project. The customization controls make it easy to adjust the properties of the entire lens flare, or of each individual element.

Export the stills for your graphic designs, motion track lens flares over the bright spots in your footage, or use them to enhance your motion graphics! It's totally free, so give it a spin and see what you can create!

    The Creation Lens Flares template is not a plugin. It's an Adobe After Effects project file, commonly known as a "template" because the work is already done and the user needs only to insert their footage and make their own adjustments. This template is compatible with version CS5 as well as all later versions of After Effects.

    Because the Creation Lens Flares template contains copyrighted intellectual property, the sharing or online posting of project files with or for anyone other than a client is prohibited. See the Terms and Conditions for more details.
