'Ring flare'

Did some compositing experimentation tonight primarily to do with 360 degree directional blur, and lens dispersion, or what would usually be viewed as ultra-strong chromatic aberration.

Compositing setup for anyone interested [25 nodes in total]
The texture is a regular cloud texture, size 0.03, depth 6.

Hope everyone likes this effect. :slight_smile:

omg! thats one insane node setup for such a simple effect! what does it do to the image behind it i wonder… use it in a scene :stuck_out_tongue:

Wow. Looks like a giant iris!
