Light leaks happen when the body of a camera isn’t light-tight and some light leaks in and overexposes the film (or sensor). It’s often used along with vintage effects to give a sense of warmth and a reminiscense of analog cameras.
Making a trendy vintage effect in Blender is easier than you think. We can get some great results with just a couple of nodes.
Lens distort is fine but sometimes you want more control, specially in animations
This is one of those effects you won’t be using very often (if ever), but it’s useful to learn more about the compositor and open to new ideas.
