  1. Set up the base lighting of your scene to have some contrast in lighting going on - Dirt Masks respond best to light shining in to the lens so think about having some Backlighting.
  2. In your Camera Settings find the Dirt mask option.
  3. Add some imagery from your content browser in to the Dirt Mask Texture Slot.
  4. Adjust the Intensity and Dirt Mask Tint to adjust the subtlety of the Dirt Mask.
  5. Move your Camera around to see the effect the light in your scene has on your Lens.
