Lindsey Optics Brilliant² Rota-Streak™ Filter is a new twist in streak filters giving new creative options for in-camera streak, star and swirl effects. These rotating streak filters create exciting streaks on bright lights and highlights in a scene.
The Brilliant² Rota-Streak are designed to fit in most professional 4x5.65" Matte Boxes, and they are constructed by mounting our 138mm Round Brilliant Streak filters in a geared rotating frame that fits in 4x5.65 matte boxes using one stage in the matte box.
The rotating filter mount allows rotation of the streak effect to find just the right angle for the streak. Or motorize the rotation for dynamic rotating streak, star and swirl effects.
To make their streak filters, Lindsay Optics use a unique manufacturing method to laminate very small cylindrical rod lenses inside the glass filter. By incorporating the rod lenses with different spacing, a variety of streak effects can be achieved. A closer spacing creates a stronger effect, a wider spacing creates a weaker effect.
The diamond pattern creates a star cross effect and the swirls create beautiful eliptical flares on specular light sources and highlights.
Brilliant Streak Filters are available in 7 types: 2mm, 3mm, 4mm and 6mm, Diamond Star, Confetti and Swirl
They are available now in 7 colors: Clear, Blue, Yellow, Green, Pink, Orange and Red
Star configuration of colored resin rod lenses inside the filter create a strong 4 point star effect with colored tint on specular light sources and highlights in the scene.
The confetti sprinkle of colored resin rod lenses inside the filter creates a unique multi-star effect on specular light sources and highlights in the scene.
The swirl of colored resin rod lenses inside the filter creates a unique radial star streak effect with colored tint and long elliptical tails.
