A compositing node group
for post-processing


In the film industry, complex lens aberrations like lens flares and streaks indicate complex camera lenses, hence a big production budget. 
In CGI, resembling such flares lifts your scene to dazzling quality.

John Knoll's light factory changed the digital approach, defining a point in the image with a given brightness. This point doesn't represent large bright areas well.

using every pixel in the rendered image as sources
to create complex and vivid lens aberrations.

A complex node group lets you define the intensities of different lens phenomena:

ghosts / streak / iris / star / halo / dust

The last parameter is quality which downscales the calculation for faster results.

This product includes a blend file with a sample scene for easy integration.

The node is ideal for VFX work, Motion Design,
and scenes with bright windows and engines in space.
