Try the demo of Velvetmatter Glint?

2- Light rays is vaguely close.

3- You might be able to get something vaguely like VM Glint using linear light compositing...

a- Set your project to 32-bit, compositing mode 1.000

b- Duplicate your video clip onto upper layers twice.

c- Change the compositing mode on the tracks to:
- Add
- Add
- Source Alpha

d- On the two upper layers, add:
Linear Blur.
Color Curves. Do a s-shaped curve.

e- Because your overall brightness is now higher, you can add levels on video output FX to bring exposure down.

f- You might want to do all this in a nest. And render to a new track for better performance in your master nest. Instead of doing e, apply the Levels onto your render to new track render.

With the linear blur, have one of them go at a different angle. You can play around with the angles.
The amount should be non-zero.

e- If you're picky about detail, you'd also figure out how to get the pixel aspect ratios correct.

Vegas will complain that the media is missing... I think you can point Vegas towards just anything (?). Otherwise you can probably point vegas towards any cineform 1080i intermediate clip. If not, just let me know and I'll change the .veg to work with a still image and you can download that.

Yes that veg was Vegas 8.

Vegas 7 doesn't support the 32-bit stuff. Ignore step a, and step e has to be tweaked.
