This is an second OpenGL powered lens flare pack (to GLFlares) with 20 new presets. These flares have more streamlined rigging features and should run slightly faster in the VSE. There are no instructions with the file... but they should be used in the same way that the GLFlares pack describes.
The flares seem to work better if they are used as separately rendered layers and then composited in the VSE than if they are composited as scenes in the VSE... just a suggestion.
I have also included a folder of flare elements for your own creations.

Absolutely freakin awesome, dude!
Amazing! ! ! Thank you
Cool. Only thing I can't figure out is how to render it with transparent background. Is there a way, or is it a limitation of using OpenGL rendering here?
Can't unzip file "Lens Flare rig elements not a directory"
Great work ! Thanks a lot for this ressources.
Hi boss I'm a great fan of your GLSL Flares. I actually always work in GLSL because of its fast rendering. I added a trick for visibility of the flare. Please have a look at this work : blends/view/91808
it's hard to explain what I have done... it use xray visibility and driver...
please be OK to use this trick in your own work, eventualy for V3. It's a friendly share (CC0). Greatings, Mokauno
Thank You for your work!
can you use this in 2.8? looks useful, a refresh and a tut might be cool
Does this work with 2.8?
Is there an upgrade to blender 2.8 ?
Way cool! In my opinion, they look as good as the Video Copilot lens flares. :)
