Peter,
Sorry it has taken me so long to reply to your post. I have tried the Bcc5 open GL lens flair on a
G5 dual 2.7 PowerPC and a Two 3.0GHz Dual-Core Intel Xeon Mac Pro. both produce the same result.
When a lens flare is applied in a Motion project, (4:3 aspect ratio) it has circular light rings which is what you would expect. if the same Motion project is placed on a 4:3 FCP timeline the rings appear oval shaped, which is not what you would expect. I have a screen grab and a motion project l could send to you if you let me have your email address.

Great product by the way!!

regards
Adrian

Hi Adrian,

Apologies for the delay in getting back to you on this - I'll follow your steps and see if I can reproduce the result that you are seeing and if so I'll see if there is a solution that I can arrive at that will generate the result that you are looking for.

Stay tuned.

Cheers,

Peter.

And by the way, here's my email address:

peterm@borisfx.com

But don't try to send anything larger than a couple of megs as it will be rejected by the server. yousendit ftp is best for that.

Cheers,

Peter.

Okay so I followed the steps as you described them and can't reproduce the error that you are seeing. I used the Lens Flare Advanced, with the 16:9 option disabled and whether I apply it in Motion or in FCP the result is identical - the lens flare is perfectly round and without distortion. Are you using the FxPlug version of the filter?

Cheers,

Peter.
