Adding lens flares to transitions in video can really help make your video look more professional and set the mood for your scene. Recently, I got a chance to review Rody’s Lens FX and Lens FX Fantasy from These are great stock footage lens flares that can not only be used in Sony Vegas but just about any other editing program. Coming in at around $20 bucks each pack or about $35 for the bundle, it’s perfect for those on a low budget. Of course, there are always FREE alternatives to just about everything and you may even be able to make these yourself in a program like Adobe After Effects or Sony Vegas but you may not always have the time.

Lets take a look at how simple it is to add these lens flare transitions in Sony Vegas Pro 11.
