Ease of use
Simply add a layer, apply the Lux plug-in, and enjoy the enhanced atmosphere, ambiance and drama. Lux automatically creates visible sources for all Point and Spot lights in the scene. You can even choose to have Lux applied only to lights by name, making complex scenes easy to manage.

Sophisticated controls
Lux lets let you specify the look of the light beam, its intensity, falloff and behavior, and how far it travels in the After Effects 3D scene. Multiple controls let you set the style of the lighting from natural to intense with controls that interact with After Effects' built-in light controls.

Lux offers complete integration with After Effects Light layers. Lux's lights are based on After Effect's built-in light layers, so as you move a light in a 3D scene, Lux automatically updates as its position changes in 3D space. Integrated alpha channel output lets you extend or enhance the visible area to add smoke or dust to further enhance the Lux effect.


Fast rendering
With Lux, you can see the light with less waiting: it's a 3D effect without the long rendering times of 3D.

Multiprocessor Support
Lux takes full advantage of all processors (Mac and PC) and Intel hyperthreading.

Light Modeling
Select a Light Model for different light looks.

Non-Square Pixels
Lux handles non-square pixel aspect ratios correctly, so you'll have no unpleasant surprises.

Deep Color
