I am currently a lookdev lead for a short film and really want to do something interesting with the lighting.
So my question is. Are there any plug ins or effects i can add too Arnold that will give the light a type of texture or effect so it isn't just default flat or smooth lighting? In an ideal world I would like to have a subtle paint brush type effect to the lighting but anything will be great.
I have been searching the internet for a decent while now and found a few examples of what i would like but nothing for Arnold. I would like to stay in Arnold for Maya as that is what my whole team is most comfortable with but if need be we could look at other renders.

If anyone has any ideas it would really help out alot.
