FLARED IS A PROCEDURAL LENS FLARE GENERATOR FOR BLENDER 2.80 (AND 2.81 TOO)

A simple easy to use add-on. Add your lens flares in 6 steps and fine tune them.

The procedural lens flare generator is based on 3D elements and procedural textures, so it’s resolution independent. It is completely real time because it adds to your scene the 3D elements that compose the flare.
FLARED is not screen space based, so it works also when the light source is out of the screen space. You can create as much flares as you want, there’s no limit (it depends on your hardware).

HOW IS A FLARE MADE?

Each flare has Glow, Streaks, Sun Beams, Ghosts, Hoops. They have different behaviour depending on the selected template.
Flared, the lens flare generator, gives you the ability to create as many flares as you need in your scene.

THE FIVE SEVEN TEMPLATES OF FLARED

Here are described the features of the five templates that you will find in FLARED 1.0. Now they are seven, because in the last month we’ve added two new templates. To watch them in action, take a look at the Tutorial/News section of this site.

FEATURES

– Flared is a simple Addon for Blender 2.80.

– It works only in Eevee (no Cycles).

– It’s based on 3D elements and procedural textures, so it’s resolution independent.

– It is completely real time, as it adds to your scene the 3D elements that compose the flare.

– It’s very easy to use: select a camera, select a light (or more lights), add a flare, play with its sliders.

– It’s not screen space based, so it works also when the source is out of the screen space.

– There is no physical base in Flared: it doesn’t simulate real light or lenses. It is an artistic instrument to add drama and cinematic effect to your renders and animations.

– It has 5 templates with different characteristics (Octagonal, Sci-Fi, Rounded, Simple, Adaptive)

– It is designed to work perfectly with point lights. The “Adaptive” template lets you match a light source with rectangular shape.

– For each template you have different sliders to adjust the dimension and the emission values of the different elements that compose the flare.

– You can use keyframes on each slider, to animate your light.

– Each flare need to have at least a camera and a light source (the light source could be an object or a light).

– You can create as much flares as you want, there’s no limit (it depends on your hardware).

– To simulate the occlusion behind objects, youl’ll have to add manually keyframes to the “Occlusion” value slider, that controls gradually the visibility of the flares. There’s no automation in this.

– It’s not recommended for animations that use multi-camera.

– Sometimes you can have glitches due to too high emission settings or too high dimensions settings, but it’s very simple to solve it playing with the sliders.

– We will support this add-on for one year at least. If you buy it you’ll have access to free updates till september 2020.

– We won’t be able to guarantee direct technical support. Anyway we’ll listen to our customers requests, seek for bugs, and try to improve the add-on, updating it every time we will do a fix.

– There are news about license key. We have adopted an anti-piracy system. You will receive a pesonal activation key. You will be able to activate two versions of Flared (even on different PCs). Don’t give your key to anybody, as it is only yours and is intended for one person that works on two different computers (home and work). The new versions of Flared will require you to insert your key. Please, remember to uninstall the addon if you are moving to a new system or a new version of Blender, because is the only way to empty an activation linked to your license. If you have problems with the key, please, write us.

WHO

We are two friends living in northern Italy. We met years ago, both working with Blender on their own projects. At the beginning of this year we had the intuition that with Eevee it was possible to finally realize high-level effects, in real time, without compositor. 

So we started working at FLARED, day and night. We put all our technical and creative skills into it. We hope you enjoy the product and give us the opportunity to continue working on it. There are many ideas for improving it.
