1 HD Clip Leaks a Little

I have been experimenting with a couple of general effects and thought it might be kind of cool to create my own "Light Leak".  These videos are used traditionally as an overlay and helps transition between clips.  They give a very nostalgic effect to your footage, and really helps those people going for that "instagram" like look in their video. 

I went about creating it a little differently and stacked 2 lenses to give myself a slight pinhole of exposure.  People can now scale the leak to any size as well as position it any way they'd like to get the desired effect.

I'll post some examples of people using the light leak effect correctly to our Facebook page.
