Without filter With HOYA PRO1D STAR 4 filter

Star filters are dramatic multi-point light flares or rays of light also know as a "star effect" to bright or strong point light sources in a scene. Star filters come in 3 different varieties: PRO1D STAR 4, STAR-SIX and STAR-EIGHT, they have 4, 6 or 8 light beams respectively emanating from the light source.

Each of the filters, PRO1D STAR 4, STAR-SIX and STAR-EIGHT have different patterns of lines etched in the glass to create the number of rays of light for the filter.

When shooting video rotate the frame to achieve dynamic and rhythmical movements of the beam flares.
