I’m trying to composite 2 layers with different colours, each with a glow effect. Unfortunately, when I combine them it produces a render that is way too bright and drowns out the colours of each layer. I’ve tried add, mix, screen and alpha over, as well as Filmic Blender (to increase dynamic range) and CDL node, but nothing seems to work. How can I composite these while preserving their colours? Is it possible to have layers that don’t affect each other’s brightness/contrast?
Here’s the first layer:
Here’s the second:
This is what happens when they’re combined:
