Knoll Light Factory 3 is a major update to Red Giant’s 3D lens flare system, with a new
library of presets and automated Behaviours with After Effects 3D integration.
|Co-developed with VFX Supervisor John Knoll, the new Light Factory has a more intuitive interface, realistic flare elements, new presets and time-saving automated Behaviours due to updated elements for the flare engine for better accuracy at high resolution. The library includes a collection of realistic cinematic and distant flares that I've built to help with your next production.|
To show the cinematic potential of Knoll Light Factory 3, Red Giant has produced ‘Order Up’, a new short film with Seth Worley, director of Red Giant's previous demo film ‘Plot Device’.
The controls in the new interface have been reorganised, and the Lens Designer preview has been rebuilt. The new realistic flare elements include 28 elements and 56 sprites for completing light designs. The product ships over 100 lens flare presets, including new presets designed by John Knoll to emulate real world lenses and lights, useful for visual effects, sci-fi scenes and motion graphics.
New automated Behaviours instantly add unique animation by simulating real world light effects like Strobe, Pulse, Flicker and Blink. The new Edge Reaction feature flares or fades light at the edge of a frame for more realistic effects and cinematic impact. Integration with After Effects 3D camera and comp lights lets users move the Knoll flares in 3D space and sync them with animated lights.
Knoll Light Factory 3 is available now for new customers, and all existing Knoll Light are eligible to upgrade. www.redgiant.com
