Flares in Progress

It’s funny how I mentioned in my lens flare chart the lack of (visible) development for Optical Flares and just a few weeks later we get a bug fix update and a hint that version 2 is being worked on. That’s good news and I hope it addresses some issues I pointed out in my table, in particular better coloring options by ways of a decent gradient widget/ editor, fixing alignment issues in 3D as well as those annoying problems with blending modes where you have to re-arrange your layers to get it to look right. All that and of course some new features like DOF response or making triggers respond with more control by using custom falloff curves. In the meantime, the presets that come with the update should keep you busy for a while…
