Can anybody tell me how to use aperture diffraction to get some nice lense flares? Does not work for me...

You'll need an obstacle map.

Luckily, it doesn't have to be power of two texture, so you could easily use whatever you find. Generated aperture shape always produces nice results, and there is not much difference between physical and post-process AD, except for the RAM usage.

hmmmm...
already tried path tracing with MLT, and I have tried every obstacle map I can get.. But I never get it like in the manual, see below. There must be another option...

I think to get lense fares you need to build a lens system in front of the cam.
If you want the real thing. If you looking for an effect only just use different obstacle maps in cam setting.
