The BCC Stage Light filter was designed to augment the built-in lights in
Adobe After Effects or to function as a 3D lighting system when used in
supported non Adobe After Effects hosts.
While the lighting system in After Effects is indeed rich and powerful, it is
incapable of generating real-world volumetric lighting, such as one might see
when stage lights are used to illuminate talent on a real set. The BCC Stage
Light filter generates 3D volumetric lighting with control over the visible
light levels as well as other real world stage-light attributes such as smoke
particles. The BCC Stage Light filter creates this effect using either the
host native After Effects lights, or via the use of the filters own built-in
3D lighting system.
