Let’s Edit with Media Composer – Working with Lens Flare 3D

In this lesson Kevin P McAuliffe talks about working with Continuum 2019’s Lens Flare 3D inside of Avid Media Composer.  When editors think of Lens Flares, they think of JJ Abrams type lens flares that are more stylistic than anything.  Lens Flares do add a stylistic look to your footage, but they can also be used to simulate real world scenarios like the raising and setting sun, and quick flashes of flares, as a cars headlight shines past the screen.  In this lesson, we’re going to look at Lens Flare 3D, part of Continuum 2019.5, and look at a both a real world scenario of adding a realistic looking sun element to a shot, and then we’re going to use Mocha Continuum to attach a Lens Flare to a light element in a shot, and save ourselves tons of time doing the process manually.  Enjoy!
