Free Light Leaks Pack

Free Light Leaks Pack

Free Light Leaks

Ever need some quick and easy light leaks for your projects? Here’s 16 light leaks I’m giving away for free in my Light Leaks Pack! It’s the least I could do to give back to the awesome supportive community I have here at the Dojo.

The pack contains 15, full 1080p HD clips of real light leaks.

You can download them here:

You can use these in your personal or commercial projects. No link back required, but feel free to give the Dojo a shoutout. You may not redistribute or include these files in your own free/commercial products. The only place people should be able to get these files are from this website.

Ideas & Examples

Here’s an example of how you can use light leaks in your animations. I created this awhile back not using this pack, but it should give you an idea. Play around with the blending modes (Add, Screen, Color Dodge, etc) and add some color correction/grading, you should get some interesting results. You can even colorize the light leaks to something wild like a neon blue and combine leaks together to form longer/random leaks.

Hope you guys enjoy the pack and hopefully all the downloads won’t crash the server! These aren’t the greatest light leaks, but they should get the job done and allow you to play around with the old school style. If you create anything cool with these, let me know down in the comments below. I’d love to hear all the feedback and comments.

  • Andrew

    Thank you so much, they look very nice 🙂
    I have a question: if I understand well I cannot use some of these leaks in an after effects photo gallery and then sell the gallery on videohive or similar sites, am I correct?

    • VinhSon Nguyen


      Correct because then you’d be packaging the files I made with the project. You “could” pre-render all the light leaks you used into one lightleak file and distribute that. This is a special case 🙂

  • Erick

    Awesome, Thank you. :}

  • Hey VinhSon

    I’m new to After Effects and as I understand for me to use these Light Leaks (amazing by the way) I need them to be Alpha + RGB. Nice and easy to download but just need a bit of help getting them to work!!

    • VinhSon Nguyen

      Just put them on top of a layer and change the blending mode to Screen or Add (:

  • Thanks for the free download! Does this work with fcpx? or just aftereffects?

    • VinhSon Nguyen

      It’ll work in both, including all NLE editors. The clips are .mov files, so any application that supports .mov type files should support it!

  • Very helpful. Thanks for sharing.

  • Cám ơn anh ^^

  • Thanks so much for providing this!

  • This is BRILLIANT! Thanks VinhSon, this is greatly appreciated.
    Love the site btw.

  • sncfrk

    Hi, these look really great!

    I noticed that in your note it says the package is around 500mb, but when I downloaded it the package is only 34mb, and the mov’s seem to have some banding/compression artifacts.

    I’m still happy to use them, just curious if there’s a higher-quality download still available.

    Thank you!

    • VinhSonNguyen

      Hey buddy,

      Sorry, I forgot to change the file size. The original size was original 500mb but is not compressed to 34mb. Believe it or not, the original 500mb files were worse than the 34mb. I did a lot of artifact cleaning and grain removal. Trust me, if the 500mb files were better, I would’ve kept them 🙂

      Luckily, a bit of banding/compression won’t be visible when you set the transfer mode to add/screen, so it shouldn’t be a problem 🙂

  • VinhSon, thank you sincerely for sharing these. Can’t wait to give them a try!

    • VinhSonNguyen

      Thanks for the support Allan, let me know if you create something cool with them 🙂

  • Jake Kelsick

    VinhSon, Your zip seems to have gotten corrupted some how. It downloads find but when I try to unzip it it says it is invalid. : ( Please help.

    • VinhSonNguyen

      Hey Jake,

      Try refreshing your browser and re-download again. Should be up and working now 🙂

  • Boomyhouse

      • Another Substance

        Already having fun with the free pack! Thank you for pointing me in the right direction.

        I’ve lost count of all the music, picture, video and software plugins I have.

        They need to make some kind of plugin organizer.

  • Thanks a lot for this pack. Nice work!

    Quick question. If I decide that I want to use any of your light leak effects in a YouTube video, am I allowed to do so? I don’t know what your terms/conditions are. I don’t plan on monetizing or anything, just for entertainment. My YouTube channel is StoicRS. If I have your permission to do so could you reply to me? Thanks!

    • Hey man, the terms are included in the download, but to keep it simple: you may use the light leaks in your YouTube videos (monetized or not). The only thing you CAN’T do is distribute or give any part of the pack away/charge for them. Feel free to use it however you want 🙂

    Good job and thank so much VinhSon Nguyen.. hope you always successfull, a cup of coffee for you..

    Thank you so much for providing these! I’m having trouble opening the file once I download it… I have OS X Yosemite… says it can’t unzip the file because nothing is in it… sorry to be a bother.

    • May have been corrupted while you were downloading. Try re-download it, and maybe unzipping it with a different application like Unarchiver or something.
