The Light Leak Generator allows users to easily customize a variety of light leak effects for compositing over your footage in After Effects. Along with the customizable effects, this template also includes 100 seconds of HD light leak footage for fast and easy compositing. The footage is a combination of authentic light leaks captured in-camera, as well as pre-rendered computer-generated light leaks.
Light leaks traditionally occur when light manages to enter through cracks in a film camera's body, exposing the film and producing colorful flashes of light. But what was once an accidental defect, is now a popular effect for stylizing videos! This template is perfect for creating transitions for editing, to get an old film look, or for adding a grunge style to footage.
A short light leak clip sells for $60 or more on a stock footage site like iStock.
That makes you a smarty-pants for shopping here!

The Light Leak Generator template is not a plugin. It's an Adobe After Effects project file, commonly known as a "template" because the work is already done and the user needs only to insert their footage and make their own adjustments. This template is compatible with version CS5 as well as all later versions of After Effects.
