Realistic Lightning Effects

One of the exciting new additions to Eye Candy 7 is the Lightning effect. Unlike actual lightning in nature, you have fine control over where the bolt appears and what it looks like. This lets you decide how to add drama to outdoor scenes like the one below.


Check out this video about the Lightning effect in Eye Candy and learn how to make lightning shots like this yourself.

You can download and use Eye Candy 7 in trial mode if you don’t own it already.

      Eye Candy 7 is not compatible with Flexi sign. Perhaps contacting the people at Flexi would be the best route to take. I’m sorry we can’t be of more assistance.
