“This set of four new OMNI System wands, handcrafted by glass artists in Portland, Oregon, puts variable flare effects, ranging from a slight kiss of visual interest to wild explosions of points of light, at your fingertips,” says Craig Strong, Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer at Lensbaby. “From stretching light sources in a single direction with straight cylindrical and flat surfaces, to moving that light in multiple axes with bent, organically formed curves and orbs of glass, this new expansion pack provides you with limitless ways to create compelling flare in your video and still images.”

OMNI Flare Expansion Pack Details:

The Flare Expansion Pack includes the following Effect Wands and Filters in a custom-designed pouch:

  • Anamorphic Raindrop: Handcrafted with a “Raindrop” at the end to give you selective distortion with the body of the wand making cinematic flare out of your highlights.
  • Prism Flare: Apply a prism effect to your stretched points of light, splitting them into tiny bits of rainbows that come and go when rotated
  • Zig-Zag: Make explosions of light while creating effects ranging from subtle to over-the-top based on the rotation and placement of its hand-crafted curves.
  • Saber: Brush the highlights in impressionistic reflections while varying the length of streaky flare that shortens and lengthens when rotated.
