Lens flare?

not sure what to call it. I’m trying to get the starburst effect from a render with blue strobe lights. I’ve tried glow and glare, not sure what the difference is honestly, but they aren’t giving me the desired effect. Is this something that is possible in flamingo?

I’ve attached a picture of the effect I’m going for. I’ve also attached a picture of my render. the white flood lights have glare, the blue lights have glow. i want the blue lights to be sharp and star like.

Most likely done in post processing/photoshop / aftereffects etc.

my free choise to achieve that effect of light
