Dust VFX ?


It has been hours since I try to reproduce in an effect that I saw in The Last of Us game. It is about an effect of dust stuck on the objective when there is a light source. How to make please?

    First thing that came to mind was the lens dirt effect, but that will always also give you a glow pivoted around the center of the image.

    But you can do this manually, just get a lens dirt map (one of these, for example), put it above your video, apply the "Set matte" effect to it, use the video as the source layer and use "Luminance" as the matte source.
