    Default Moving lens Flare


    Has anyone figured out how to create a moving lens flare in Premiere Pro? The lens flare is one of the video effects in Pro but I can't see how to move it (i.e. to coincide with the camera panning).

    I'm sure the lens flare effect is keyframable. (I think I have even done this in Elements, so if Elements lets you prem pro is bound to!)

    Just position the centre of the flare in the right place of the first frame. Switch on keyframes to create a position keyframe for it there. Move to the last frame of the shot and move the flare origin there to create a second keyframe. Now the flare centre should track from between the first to second keyframe.
