Rendering composite had random output


I am hoping someone will be able to help me out here. I’m pretty new to blender but i’m seeing some random output when I try to render a fairly basic file. I have designed a computer with a trim around the front of it that glows. I achieved the glow using the node editor following this tutorial I have followed these instructions carefully but have seen random outputs with the same functions selected. Sometimes I would even see both layers display as the same thing in the node editor, sometimes they are reversed, sometimes nothing at all in one or the other or both. It doesn’t make sense at all and I think i’m at my wits end.

I am running windows vista 64 bit. blender version 2.49a. I’m not sure what else to tell you. If you would like more information or the .blend file please let me know.


Maybe your are mixing up layers and render layers. Here’s a link to the wiki manual:
