Expand your creativity
The Vaxis Clear/Blue/Rainbow True‐Streak filters have been designed to be used perpendicular to a point light source such as the sun, a light bulb, or a candle.
The fine lines inside the filter’s glass form a tight combination to, which creates beautiful streaks of light emitting from point light sources.
Moreover, this effect can be used to mimic an anamorphic look or a more stylized approach to back lighting commonly used in various scenarios including music videos and commercials.
The results are often presented in prominent, elongated streaks that are symmetric and extend horizontally from each point light source for the purpose of drawing attention to a specific part of the frame, or to create a visually dramatic effect.
