The Dojo Review
Optical Flares is my favorite lens flare plugin for After Effects. It’s fast, it’s easy to use, and you can easily customize and save your flares for future use. The integration with After Effects is solid and integrates well, reducing most of the 3D flaws that comes when working with After Effects. This should be the plugin you use to create realistic 3D flares for your projects.
