    The "VII" image that I posted above is of course pathetically lame, because I used an old version of PS and its rudimentary built-in flare filter. I don't have a plugin to do proper anamorphic flares. I'm lame.

    [Edit: I have deleted that image, because it was lame.]

    ...

    As one plugin vendor recently observed, anamorphic flares "have become extremely popular" in "Science Fiction films such as Star Trek," "to create a stylistic theme throughout the film."

    I was wondering where this thread went.

    The light side of the force shall be called the blinding side of the force.
    I'm going to buy stock in the flashlight industry right now. When abrams starts filming ep vii, it will go way up

    Episode vii: The Phantom Lens Flare

    Peace is a lie, there is only passion.
    Through passion, I gain strength.
    Through strength, I gain power.
    Through power, I gain victory.
    Through victory, my chains are broken.
    The lens flare shall free me.

    Sorry, I really HATED the lens flare amount in the last Star Trek. In half of the film I couldn't see anything! My old parents had to quit watching it altogether because the flares made them sick watching. I don't see what it adds, and I really hope Arbams stops overusing them like in Star Trek.

    Still find this "The FLare is strong with this one" the funniest:



    The WORST thing is, that I am kinda afraid it will REALLY look like that. >.<

    No, it is making a point. Trite jokes are not funny. The subject isn't even that good in terms of joke material; they stopped being funny after the first few days of the announcement, and were only moderately funny then. Time to find some new comedy material, the crowd is booing.

    [face_laugh] Yeah, ok you are correct but we're bored and endlessly waiting for more news. There's also no harm in old jokes.... also you realize you dont have to look at this thread if you find the jokes old and stale, right?

    This thread also serves a purpose of keeping lens flare jokes out of other threads, so they wont ambush people with your opinion in other threads. So please, let bygones be bygones
