***Winners Announced***

Today MotionVFX has launched mFlare, a plugin that brings gorgeous optical style lens flare effects to Motion5 and Final Cut Pro X. We have 5 copies to give away in our competition.

Hot on the heels of mLooks, MotionVFX have launched a brand new plugin called mFlare. Priced at $89 it looks good value compared to the other larger plugin packages that only feature a couple of flares. Using lens flares is a good way to jazz up a boring company logo or bring a little life into a dull shot. There's a range of built in presets to give you instant results or to be used as a starting point to build your own.

The 5 lucky winners who will each receive a copy of mFlare are:


 

As FCPX doesn't allow plugins at the moment, you will have to have Motion5 installed for the MOEF wrappers to work. We would also suggest you check out the machine and software specifications on the MotionVFX website. They have also produced a good range of tutorials for the plugin that's well worth checking out.

There is a good example of mFlare in action by Fullframe Cinema on Vimeo, some of it is very subtle but you can see what the plugin can add to a wedding video.

"This video contains the new lens flare plugin by MotionVFX called mFlare for FCPx and Motion 5. I used the mFlare plugin in every shot of this video, sometimes very subtly, other times more evident. There are over 100 shots. Although I can say anything specific about it yet, my experience so far has been wonderful!"
