How to Use Knoll Light Factory 3.0

Some of the parameters that you can adjust in Knoll Light Factory 3.0 are:
Light Source: This determines where the flare originates from. You can use the center of the layer, a point on the layer, a track point or a mask path as your light source.
Obscuration Layer: This determines what layer blocks or obscures the flare. You can use any layer in your composition as an obscuration layer.
Edge Behavior: This determines how the flare behaves when it reaches the edge of the layer. You can choose to have it fade out, wrap around or clip at the edge.
Elements: These are the individual components that make up the flare, such as glow, streaks, rings, spikes and more. You can add, remove or edit any element as you wish.
Color: This determines the color of each element in the flare. You can use a single color, a gradient or a sampled color from your layer.
Brightness: This determines how bright each element in the flare is. You can use a fixed value or a value based on your layer's luminance.
Scale: This determines how big each element in the flare is. You can use a fixed value or a value based on your layer's scale.
Position: This determines where each element in the flare is located relative to the light source. You can use a fixed value or a value based on your layer's position.
By playing with these parameters, you can create endless variations of lens flares for your projects.
