    looking into the sun

    I am trying to simulate looking into the sun from a pilot in a cockpits view, can anyone shed any light or ideas on how to accomplish this?
    Thanks so much in advance,
    Carol

    I have been trying and still have not accomplished this, I even tried the LW youtube Lightwave 3D - Lens Flare, Star, Sun - By Lee Andrew but he does it on a black screen, mine is already in sun light daytime, 9:54 a.m. but I cannot get the results I am looking for. I would like to take his sun and put it into my scene but that wouldn't work either. My plane is landing and the pilot looks to his left and gets the sun in his eye and i am trying to duplicate that which seems to be nearly impossible if using the light as a sun spot. If anyone has ideas please send them my way.
    Thanks again..

    Not sure what you could do in LW native, but typically this is handled in post with After Effects or other compositing application with lens flares and other effects. Good luck.

    What's wrong with a bit of lens flare and a sprinkle of bloom?
