This is the LensFlare app modeling a bright xenon arc lamp shining into an anamorphic lens.
Xenon arc lamps are often used in film making to light sets because they have a bright and very natural daylight spectrum.
This is a dusty anamorphic lens with a curved cylindrical surface. This curvature causes the horizontal streaks. The blue tint comes from the anti-reflective coating on the lens. This is just an example of the level of detail that goes into modeling each lens flare, from the light source to the type and shape of the lens.
Lens flares have become quite prominent in film and TV. They can be a huge part of a film’s style, adding a whole new layer to the visual language. LensFlare includes several flare styles inspired by TV and film. These flares are often characterized by horizontal streaks caused by the anamorphic lens used for wide format. All flares in these images were created directly in the LensFlare app.
