Simulating camera/eye optical effects and response
lens flares
depth of field
motion blur
lens effects/diffraction
bokeh
chromatic aberration
tonemapping/filmresponse


-- Examples --

I've learned a ton about color correction/film response simulation and lens blur/bloom/bokeh simulation
For more detail on a project of mine that involved it you can go here:

I also did a bunch of research into simulating auto-exposure

Light splitting, chromatic aberration, rainbows. = pretty!

Some nice real world lens flares:

Make your own LensFlare by hand in AfterEffects with expressions:

Frischluft : Flair - BoxBlur with Aberrations:


Frischluft Lenscare: Simulated DOF:

Frischluft Lenscare: Distortion around edge:


Frischluft - Fresh Curves
Looks powerful, hopefully It's 32bit as I've been looking a for 32bit powerful curves editor!

With Maxwell Renders SimuLens tool you can (on any HDR image you feed it) produce a very realistic lens simulation, simulating the aperture and any dirt/obstruction on the lens:

The above was rendered in Vray by me, then color treated and given to Maxwell for the lens effect
You cannot (as far as I see) do your typical cheesy lens flare with the several concentric rings

Some tests of throwing it some brush strokes done in photoshop in 32bit:




Not quite realistic, but adds a nice touch
