Anamorphic flares can help you recreate an anamorphic look at a low cost. These flares are basically light streaks created by high-end Cinema Lenses (Anamorphic Lenses). Using anamorphic light streaks by new-age filmmakers allows indie productions to level up the production value while saving huge costs of renting a set of limited anamorphic lenses available in the market.
