If your film work consists of a lot of wedding, music, or experimental videos, you probably include a good amount of stylistic light leaks and lens flares to add a little more panache to match the emotional nature of your material. However, if you or your clients are like the Chotchkie's Manager from Office Space and want just a little more flair, RodyPolis has a collection of over 100 HD leaks and flare overlays called Lens FX Prism that are not only organic, but reasonably priced.
Okay, so you can definitely find a bunch of great overlays online, be they flares, leaks, grains, or whatever. However, many times you get what you pay for (flat, poorly designed -- essentially overlays that look like overlays). One of the great features of Lens FX Prism is that all of the light leaks and flares were created organically in-camera instead of being computer generated, so they offer a more natural look and feel.
Here's what RodyPolis has to say about their overlay package:
Lens FX Prism is a stock footage package from FX creator RodyPolis. The pack contains over 100 real light leaks and lens flare overlays that are compatible with all NLEs that support Blending Modes.
