Hi guys,

I have a problem with the lens flare in AE and really hope there is a solution for it. Okay so I just used the standard lens flares in AE and adjusted them with a fast blur and hue/saturation for some color. Now everything is fine, but since it is on a black background you see a lot of rings at the point it starts fading.

When you make a ramp you can use the scatter function to mask it out a bit, but I can’t find the answer for the lens flares. Maybe there is no solution for it than so be it :)

Below a pic of how it looks, this is when it’s rendered with no compression in quicktime.

I don’t understand the problem. What’s wrong with the image you linked?

Do you mean that you see banding when the image is compressed? I’d recommend dithering the whole image with a little subtle noise / grain.

Create an adjustment layer and apply Add Grain effect. This will remove the banding.
