Stunning Light Rays Achieve the impossible

Photos with light rays are difficult to capture, right time, right place, right angle and so on.

It took 18 months for Shine to be completed, with many iterations of the engine. All in the quest to generate the most natural looking light rays possible.

Shine 1.1 includes a refactored version of this engine, delivering superior performance (nearly twice as fast as version 1.0) while using less memory (30% less memory than version 1.0).

"Shine is a godsend for stock shooters! God rays on demand! Thanks Ohanaware!"

Beautiful Lens Flares Are easier with Shine

Camera & lens makers spend millions on trying to reduce "Lens Flares", add them back with Shine.

Lens flares, you either love 'em or hate 'em. Capturing lens flares so they compliment an image requires a skill in it's own right. Shine enables lens flares to be added post capture and because Shine's lens flare engine is based upon real lenses, it generates realistic lens flares.

Version 1.1 of Shine introduces 5 new lens flares (including some unrealistic ones).

"The lighting effects are realistic and natural looking." &
"in terms of quality and flexibility Shine is first rate."
- Mel Martin, TUAW.com
