Flares Wizard adds an extension that allows creating realistic flares of the lens quickly and effortlessly using Blender (Cycles, Eevee).
What is the reason I made this add-on?
It's a shame that in a wonderful software like Blender along with its capabilities we're unable to make decent lens flares. This is why I chose to make something like Optical flares that I designed for Bender.
Do I require these "Lens flares"?
Lens flares are light that is scattered by lenses through infrequently used mechanisms for image formation like internal reflection or scattering caused by materials that are not homogeneous in the lens. It's an effect that happens in real cameras, as the depth of field and chromatic aberration. In the realm of CG, we try to emulate these effects in order to increase realisticity. But, if it's used incorrectly it can ruin a gorgeous artwork.
This effect is extensively utilized in the cinema industry commercials, motion graphics...
