Unable to see halo through glass

hello, I have a problem with the halo function for the spotlight. It seems that if a transparent object is blocking (an object with a glass material) the halo, the halo isn’t rendered. Does anyone know how to solve this? Here is what I mean:

As you can see, I put a plane with a glass material in front of the halo. While the cube renders, the halo does not.

Blender Internal does not allow the halo through the glass. Normally, i will do some combination by Photoshop or Gimp , to let the halo to pass through the “fake” window.

This is my experience, so if any mistake don’t blame me. : D

To the best of my knowledge, halo’s will not show through RayTrans objects. If you are trying to make a Window, you can move the glass to a separate layer from your lamp and other objects and than set the Halo lamp to “Layer”. This way the Window will not block the halo.

Z transparency on the other hand - will allow you to see the halo thru the glass.

As ObiRon indicated, halo has not texture, no surface, so it’s “Z” is infinite. Make the glass z infinite will allow the renderer to see it. The other way, if you need raytrans, you can use the compositing nodes, with the glass on a different renderlayer.

Thanks! I managed to do it with ztransp. However, I would like to know, how would I be able to render the glass on a separate layer and later composite that layer in photoshop?

You can use Blender to composite. Just create two renderlayers, with the glass on one and the halo on the other, and then use a mix node to combine them.

hmm but what if I wanted to edit the layers separately in photoshop? Is there a way to render the background on one layer, then the glass on another layer and then combine the two in PS? thanks for your help btw =)

Just make sure that you render the different layers out with alpha enabled (PNG is a good format here) The rendered images can now be used in ps.

TOKYO, May 4 (Xinhua) – Thanks to joint efforts by both countries, economic and trade relations between China and Japan have registered rapid growth since China adopted the reform and opening-up policy in 1978. As each other’s key trade partner, the two nations have become increasingly interdependent. Japan has long been China’s most important trade partner. During the 11years since 1993, Japan had been China’s biggest trade partner. wow goldworld of warcraft goldbuy wow goldcheap wow goldwow power levelingwow powerlevelinglineage adenalineage 1 adenalineage 2 adenabuy lineage 2 adenatibia moneyvanguard goldwow goldwow power levelingwow powerlevelingwow goldwow power levelingwow powerlevelinglineage ii adenacheap lineage 2 adenarunescape goldrunescape moneyrunescape goldrunescape moneyrunescape goldrunescape moneyas mechanical and electrical products with higher technology content have gradually taken the place of products with low value added such as raw materials and textiles. silkroad goldbuy silkroad goldsilkroad goldbuy silkroad goldcity of villains infamycov infamyan indication that the two countries have become more interdependent in their economic growth.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Banks in the United States kept tightening lending standards and terms for both business and consumer loans over the past three months out of concern about a weakening economic outlook, according to a Federal Reserve survey issued on Monday. ADVERTISEMENTThe April survey of senior loan officers at 56 domestic banks and 21 U.S. branches and agencies of foreign banks also underlined that demand for loans from businesses and consumers was weaker – though not as markedly as in January.“Substantial majorities of domestic and foreign respondents pointed to a less favorable or more uncertain economic outlook and to a worsening of industry-specific problems as reasons for tightening their lending standards on C&I (commercial and industrial) loans over the past three months,” the Fed said.Harm Bandholz, an economist with UniCredit Markets, said the Fed findings implied that a broad-based credit crisis "has spilled over to the real economy and will continue to weigh on investment and consumer spending for some time."wow goldwow goldwow goldworld of warcraft goldworld of warcraft goldworld of warcraft goldbuy wow goldbuy wow goldbuy wow goldcheap wow goldcheap wow goldcheap wow goldwow power levelingwow power levelingwow power levelingwow powerlevelingwow powerlevelingwow powerlevelingmaple story mesos maplestory mesos maple story meso wholesaleaoc goldaoc power levelingaoc levelingaoc goldaoc power levelingaoc levelingaoc goldaoc power levelingaoc leveling2moons dil2moons goldage of conan goldaoc goldaoc power levelingage of conan power levelingaoc levelingaion goldbuy aion goldThat will be accentuated by declining job opportunities, Bandholz suggested.
