Some people showed interest in my node setup for the lights glow.
Page one of the thread if anyone is interested (Zoomer (Jak and Daxter) + City Environment)
I have provided a screenshot, of the node setup, and i also offered a brief explanation in the following post…
I also I realise that there is another way to use the pass index, without the whole set alpha and alpha over that i used, ( http://www.blendercookie.com/2010/03/09/rendering-a-light-saber/ ) So why did I not do it this way? Well first i forgot the tut existed, and second I have more than one color lights in my scene, so with my way i set the colors through materials, and have this node setup apply the glow to each color. If I used the setup in Jonathan Williamson’s tutorial, i would have to have a bunch of RBG Input Nodes as well as others… So basically my way can be applied to multiple colored objects while his cant, well it can but it would require a load more work.
And there is also Andrew Price with his Wow factor and other amazing tutorials.
(In his tut “Introduction to the Compositor”, he used layers to achieve the glow, while everything can be in one layer using my way)
So why did I just write all this? Well, if enough people want, i can make a video tutorial on creating that glow, if the screenshot is not enough
That said is anyone interested in me making that tutorial?
[EDIT]:Hmm, i just realized this is not a wip in a wip section…whups, sorry.
