# Final render not showing full node setup

I am learning how to use the node editing but have come up with a problem. I have followed the instructions that were give on a tutorial but I cannot get the effect to work there are 2 effects that I want to appear in the final render but only one appears. Here is a screen shot of my node set up. If anybody knows what i have done wrong could you please tell me . Thank you. If you need any more information please just let me know. If I am asking wrong questions or asking for the wrong information i am sorry but I am new to this site and am just learning how to use the site properly. (larger image here)

• I have tried attaching the compositor in different places to the star nodes and the nova nodes and i lose all effects. I have tried to place it at the end of the effects node frame as well but again I lose all effects, where it is placed now I can get the effect of the light in the star. – Lindsey Jun 27 '13 at 13:51
• No worries Lindsey, we all try. Your questions are ok but can you please be as specific as possible when asking? For example, what tutorial? It makes it easier for us to see where you might have went wrong. Also, try to put all the information you think we need in the actual question and not in the comments. :) – iKlsR Jun 27 '13 at 13:52
• If you haven't already, I would recommend reading the through the "Tips on asking Questions" (blender.stackexchange.com/help/how-to-ask) and the post on meta about what questions are off-topic: meta.blender.stackexchange.com/questions/1/… . The main thing to keep in mind when asking questions is "Can this be answered with solid facts?", if so, your question is probably valid. :) – CharlesL Jun 27 '13 at 14:12
• Lindsey, based on the issue we spoke about in the chat, what you ask in the question and what you want are two different things. Please clarify it when you get the time, I also recommend that you rewatch the compositing part(s) of the tutorial. – iKlsR Jun 27 '13 at 15:48
• I re-did the tutorial once again on 2.67b with no joy, then decided to do it on older version 2.62, to test, and everything worked fine. So I have reported it as a bug. – Lindsey Jun 28 '13 at 8:44

• @Lindsey no worries. :) Can you attach the .blend to your question up above. – iKlsR Jun 27 '13 at 14:16
