Hi

How do you get this type of effect:

This old film, sun effect. White screen transitions, lens flare (i think this is what its called).
Whats the closest match to this? (I.e. what'll i download to get this effect?)

Thanks

Conor

You can look in the Preset Library for the right effect. Unfortunately you can't do the lens flare in Composite Lab Pro. If you really want to do that you will either need to use your camera to get the flare or purchase Effects Lab Pro.

Here are some good presets:

You can take out the Black and white if you want some color.
