It's called a Lens Flare, and I believe it can be done in Motion. I know for a fact that it can be done in After Effects.

Other people will have other suggestions for making it.

Motion has a lens flare generator, but it's pretty basic. For the look you're wanting, the built in lens flare generator won't cut it. If I remember correctly it doesn't even have transparency, so you'll need to use composite modes or a luma keyer to have it appear over the video. Also, if you do go with the built-in generator make sure you animate the lens flare's origin, not its x/y position.

This Motion plugin appears up to the task, but I haven't used it.

If you have After Effects I can give a strong recommendation to Video CoPilot's Optical Flares plugin.

thanks a lot for the answers,
i tought it was optical flares in AEFX but i supposed there is a plug-in which "pump" the light i already got in the scene..

lens flare gave me different results and, also, had to be animated :)

Giuliano.
