Drone videographers just got some new tools.  PolarPro has expanded their library of video editing solutions with Helios Cinematic Light Effects.

The Helios Cinematic Light Effects software includes 32 drag-and-drop lens flares, light leaks, leads and transitions. “These simple-to-use effects can easily be dropped into any video composition to help streamline post production workflow,” says PolarPro.  “With effects ranging from light leaks and lens flares to light transitions, Helios offers a variety of colors, styles and looks to that can easily fit the mood of any video edit.”

Retailing at about $30, the new software is available for any drone videographer – and as it is compatible with most video editing platforms (Adobe® products such as Premiere 9.0 or later, After Effects CC or later, as well as Apple® Final Cut Pro 7 or later, and the Avid Media Composer) the system is available to operators with a wide range of experience.  (PolarPro has compiled a video tutorial for beginners here.)

“Featuring 11 flare effects, eight organic light leaks, and 13 light leads/transitions, Helios offers a wide range of 4K elements that can quick help pilots and post production teams refine their video edits to a fine production quality,” says PolarPro.  The Helios Cinematic Light Effects have been optimized for the lens profiles of the Mavic Pro and Phantom Pro 4 and Advanced, and PolarPro is planning to expand on that library soon. “With the effects properly optimized for each drone’s native camera, editors can easily splice together footage from multiple flight platforms without concerns for distracting color shifts,” says the company.
