I am deciding between that or Video Copilot optical flares for Ae.

Does anyone have experience with it?

I like it and use it quite often. it's a bit cheaper than optical flares and the plugin works not only in AE, but also in Premiere, Motion, Final Cut, Photoshop and Pixelmator. Though I only used it in Motion and FCPX, I don't know how it performs in the other apps.
here are some tutorials: http://www.motionvfx.com/mtuts,category-1.html
yesterday I got a newsletter from motionVFX with a 20% off promo code, so if you want to buy it use the code: "March".

Haven't used video copilot's version (and I love Andrew's AE products) but I really like mFlare! Got it when it was 50% off a while back and use it all the time. Oh, it even works in Photoshop. In FCP X and Motion 5, it's awesome and has a ton of controls. If you use X and 5, it's a great addition.

Thanks, guys.

I have a super specific need for it for this particular project.

Since this is my first broadcast gig in fcpx, I might as well keep going with an X plugin, right?

Cheers and I appreciate the responses,

Jeremy

Is it supposed to be this much fun?

For everything I have done with Optical Flares (the Video Copilot flare plugin) I have done the same thing in the mFlare plugin. I would say that if you want something that works in FCPX and Motion as well then dive in. It really is a quality plugin.

[Michael W. Towe] ". It really is a quality plugin."

I don't think I've had this much fun with a plugin.

Thanks for the info.

The quality is certainly exceptional.

It looks nice not as organic as the Optical Flare from Videocopilo and it will slow down your Machine when using or applying it.

Hmm.

I haven't noticed any slow downs at all and it's used in multiple instances across 10 or so spots.

It renders quickly and plays back near real time if it is the only filter.

I have a color correction, an adjustment layer, and another adjustment layer plus mflare and it still does pretty well.

I don't have the material in front of me, but I think it is pretty organic.

It is working really well for my purposes.
