How can I make my lights have a glow to them

Hi!

I am pretty new to blender, so I am just goofing around. I saw this nice shot in my viewport where my area lights had a nice glow, but when I rendered, they look all silly and boring. Any ideas as to how I can make it look like the viewport?

Thanks!

Turn on Bloom if you’re using Eevee.

so how did you do to have the effect in the viewport? It’s either a mist effect with volumetric or the bloom of eevee, but if it was the latter you should have it in render too, not clear…

Hi and Welcome,

If you still haven’t found a solution to your problem …

If you are under EEVEE, check that you have a background (background is not trasparent), otherwise the effect of Glow will not be apparent.
