I’m new to Sapphire, so apologies if this is a bit of a basic question. I’m an Avid offline editor trying to create subtle and realistic lens effects (lens flare, tilt-shift, defocuses, etc.) for my current documentary project. However, some of my early attempts have looked a bit too unnatural.
One effect I’ve seen elsewhere and which I’d like to copy is where part of the image gets duplicated in a sort of smeary ghosting or light-leak effect. You can see some examples (done in-camera, I imagine) on the following clip:

https://youtu.be/CQI9U7Q3-08?t=383 (ghosting across defocused areas)
What are the worshippers worshipping? | Civilisations - BBC Two - YouTube (tilt-shift or ghosting on left of mosque shot)
Is this something that could realistically be recreated with Sapphire?
Better still, can anyone point me to some online resources which might help me produce better results?
