Created by John Knoll, Photoshop co-creator and Star Wars effects
guru, Knoll Light Factory is one of the industry's most popular motion
graphics tools. It is most famous for its high-fidelity simulations of
light effects called flares, which simulate reflections from a very
bright light source as seen through a camera's lens. Knoll Light Factory
is Hollywood's go-to tool for adding interest to text or logos or extra
pop to FX explosions. Now includes CS5/64 bit compatibility, new custom
flares, Knoll 3D Flare and a new Lens Designer for Adobe CS5 users.
your own flares or edit a preset with the custom lens editor. Choose
from elements such as StarFilter, Ellipse, or PhotonSpikeBall, and
control each element's position, color, scale, thickness, angle, and

the lens as a whole.
the same presets that the pros turn to every day for sports events and
major motion pictures. Presets include Desert Sun, Arc Welder, Generic
Panavision, Spikey Glow, Pv1 (for exploding stars), RedLaser,
RockConcert, Omnimax (a flare seen on IMAX projection), or Distant
Quantum (the original photon torpedo).
can be obscured by objects (cars, enemy spacecraft) that come between
them and the viewer. The auto-track feature tracks specific points in an
existing alpha channel, making flare location a snap. The integrated
Knoll Unmult tool generates alphas, making it easier to include lights
and flares in complex composites.
