    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"

There are a couple of ways you can do lens flares. You can make a texture that is plugged into the post process volume under the Lens Flare tab. The alternative for the most control is to use a particle system. This is how it was done in our Infiltrator video. There is a particle system with a light that when the camera looks work as well.

You can see this post on the forums where this was discussed just a more.

If you have any other questions feel free to ask! :)

That is incomplete, what is the FX setup ? and what is the Material setup ? cause I miss there one node where you connect the 2 branchs.

As i wrote, I use additive material to simulate flares. There is no special settings for material. The FX setup, if you are about ParticleSystem, is descrided and doesn't requries any special settings to be applied. What branches do you missed?
