This is a rig for converting 16:9 aspect ratio video to 2.35:1 anamorphic aspect ratio using 4 lens distortion effects. The rig uses mesh deforming to achieve the lens effect with a default vignette overlay. This pack also includes node presets for additional vignetting (3 presets), film grain (3 presets) and color grading (12 presets). All effects are designed to be rendered directly from the viewport using OpenGL rendering and GLSL shading mode. This allows for very fast compositing and render times.

All assets are original and this rig is available for any projects without credit or reference to the author.

Tutorial for Optics Pack is available at YouTube:

    This is a very useful pack, and your tutorial came with an interesting and informative discussion of the many compositing options available for use. Thank you for sharing.

    Hi and thank you Carl :) I like all the stuff you've done for a good render and effects directly on the viewport/vse. Fast and pretty clean :)
