CineSFX allows you to quickly create realistic lighting FX

Unleash spur of the moment creativity with CineSFX

With the help of Master of Light and VFX veteran, Stefan Lange (Mission Impossible, Tomb Raider, Skyfall), Rotolight developed an industry-first suite of customisable lighting FX for filmmakers that eliminates the need to hire expensive, complex flicker-boxes.

Featured in the NEO 2, AEOS and Anova PRO 2 LEDs, CineSFXTMallows you can simulate fire, lighting, gunshots and more at a moment’s notice. “In the past I’d need a hot lamp, a cable to go into the flicker-box, and then the flicker-box itself,” says Stefan. “With this, it’s numerical so I know what I’m getting.” Particularly with the fire and lighting effects, the lighting patterns are procedurally generated to achieve a natural-looking effect.

Lange recently used his own NEO 2 three-light kit on the set of BAFTA-nominated Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool starring Anette Benning (American beauty, The Women, The Search)and Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot, Fantastic Four, 6 Days) which follows the romance between a Hollywood leading lady and a young actor. With budget and logistics not allowing for a moving car on set, CineSFXTM was used to recreate passing street lamps to achieve the effect of movement on a static set.

Filmmakers are seeing the demands on their time, budget and creativity ever increase; with CineSFXTM, your creativity doesn’t have to be limited by cumbersome flicker-box workflows.
