Star & Streak Effect Filters
Makes the most interesting use of lights in the scene. Turns points of light, either from reflections, bulbs, candles, etc. into sparkling starlike patterns.
Use either the standard 4 or 6 point star, or try the more unusual Vector Star, an eight point star with lines at asymmetrical angles, for an even more exciting effect.
Make street lights, holiday lights and most things shiny gleam!
The star filter is made of clear optical glass, which contains lines engraved on the glass surface, forming grid patterns. The closer the line spacing in the pattern, the stronger
the star effect.
A 2mm grid produces a strong-lined star. The 3mm and 4mm grids are more subtle, yet produce finely outlined stars. The 3mm grid offers a slightly broader star than the 4mm grid.
The Vector Star, Hyper Star, Hollywood Star and North Star have asymmetrical designs with lines of different brightness, for a more natural effect. They are often great in combination.
2mm, 3mm grid – A special Star effect, producing straight line of light running through the source.
