Test for Alpha Layer - Lens Flares in Imagine 3D v. 2.19
Make your own, perfect lens flares in Imagine and animate.

To the YouTube Video:


And here the scene again with much more particles:



I have found a very simple way how to let Imagine interact with very professional light and lens flares. Because the module lensflr2.ifx is already very stale and has no nice effects.

With my variant you can achieve the most beautiful lighting effects via simple multilayer rendering, which are otherwise only used by 3DS Max or Blender. In addition, my variant is completely simple and takes no time to calculate.

For the original-basic scene, I simply use a self-made filterbrush as a backflare ( Layer 1 )... which is only visible if a body hides the fake light.

This first rendered scene is then imported as a multilayer in a second scene and recalculated with the fake flare in Layer 2 quasi in real time.

I use exactly the same camera (path) position in the animation in Scene 2 and also position the second LensFlare exactly where the Layer 1 flare was positioned. So the Layer 2 Flare outshines the objects as in real ... and the scene looks very real.

Above all, you are no longer dependent on these pensive effects of the Imagine globals lensflr2.ifx module .... and you can design your scenes much more creatively. And you always have full control over your effect, which you can still readjust perfectly.

And I have to say ... the effect looks as if the scene was calculated with a real light source and a flare module.

So that you understand better how it is done, I have uploaded my scene here in the download area. Once you understand how easy this method works, you'll never again use the boring Imagine Lensflare module. Take a look at the multi-pass scene in the Action-Editor! Then you also understand how everything works.

Nice stuff, I'm looking forward to seeing this video when it's complete.

Until the complete space documentation is finished ... that may take some time, because I only work on the project, if I have the time and inclination and mood. I always render only 1 or 2 pictures in advance for the gallery or make some quick test animations. For the high-end rendering of the entire animation, it will take months of computing time. Besides, I'm only doing the animations for the documentary and do not actually have any influence on when the complete work will be finished
