I had a frustrating week...comfort zone to the rescue!!
Just a couple random experiments, about 30-40 minutes each.

:D -.- admit it, you just keep the secret to yourself to once gain world domination by lensflares! i see your evil plot!!! ^^

so, really, i assume it is just a selection and a brush and some soft edges then? i always thought there is a combination of ps effects to get this....

I did it the cheap way...made a couple dots and used motion blur in PS to stretch them way out, then duplicated/merged a couple times to make them more solid...then I think they were applied as a "screen" layer.
There are some tuts online if you want to make more correct-looking ones...search for "anisotropic lens flares".

Sorry! You want _anamorphic_ lens flares. It's an effect that comes from using an anamorphic lens when filming...see "Alien", and the new "Star Trek" for good examples.
"Mass Effect" also uses this effect a lot.

Anisotropy is something else entirely, so if you search for "anisotropic lens flare" you will not find much!
