Ok, Im very new to nodes with the actual render but Im trying to do what these people did, just get a basic glow around my emissive materials: unity animate object transform into another How do I get the Glare node to output transparent instead of Black background

Maybe Im not understanding something basic but here's my node setup:

enter image description here

And, both just in viewport when I hit Render and then when I actually render out an image, nothing is remotely glowing:

enter image description here

those image planes are emissive - they aren't glowing any more than before. Whats wrong herE?

  • $\begingroup$ Hello, I actually dont really know whats going on here as it seems that you have everything set up correctly. Try adding a simple sphere or plane into the scene and setting up with emitter properties, then see if the glare works on a raw object rather then the image. or try checking your layers and scenes and making sure everything is aligned there. Good luck. $\endgroup$ Jul 30, 2018 at 3:07

  • $\begingroup$ Why do we need the alpha over node? Doesn't the glare node already mix the original image with the fog-glowed one? In other words, the output of the glare node is identical to the output of the alpha over node? $\endgroup$
