Light Leaks

Light Leaks

The Light Leaks template allows users to easily customize a variety of HD or 4K light leak effects for compositing over your footage in After Effects. Along with the customizable effects and textures, this template also includes 115 seconds of HD light leak footage for fast and easy compositing. The footage is a combination of authentic light leaks captured in-camera, as well as pre-rendered computer-generated light leaks.

Light leaks traditionally occur when light manages to enter through cracks in a film camera's body, exposing the film and producing colorful flashes of light. But what was once an accidental defect, is now a popular effect for stylizing videos! This template is perfect for creating transitions for editing, to get an old film look, or for adding a grunge style to footage.


    • Compatible with Adobe After Effects, versions CS5 and all later versions (including Creative Cloud). Works on both Mac and PC. No plugins required.
    • This template includes:

      - 5 custom light leak comps in both HD (1920x1080) and 4K (3840x2160). Customize with easy-to-use slider controls.
      - 5 custom, animated texture comps in both HD and 4K. Texture comps have textures that change on each frame, and can be overlaid over your footage.
      - 5 unique HD light leak video clips, totalling 115 seconds in duration, including old film light leaks, DSLR light leaks, and pre-rendered CG light leaks.

    • "Light Leaks" has been universalized, meaning it will work with After Effects running in any language.
    • Music and footage placeholders in the demo and tutorial videos are not included.

    The Light Leaks 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.
