Just a little something something I did yesterday.
Seems like a great way to get effects like bloom without sacrificing cycles material reproduction.
I’ve noticed that with some procedural materials(like the slipstream effect) there is significant banding in Eevee output. Whereas its not a thing in Cycles. This doesn’t present a huge issue in animation where that effect is moving, but in stills its kinda obvious and not so pretty.
/Includes Chris Kuhn’s Shenzhou model.

Same deal, but used ‘soft light’ instead. Not as nice, but still interesting.
