I'm trying to create a bloom in the Cycles render engine, I believe I have successfully created it but unfortunately, I'm having some trouble rendering the new nodes: enter image description here

Here are the nodes (notice the lack of the HDR)enter image description here

Here is the rendered image (notice the lack of bloom)

Thank you

    $\begingroup$ Maybe in the Properties panel > Output > Post Processing, you have disabled Compositing? $\endgroup$ – moonboots Apr 7 at 16:38

  • $\begingroup$ please provide your blend file $\endgroup$ – Chris Apr 7 at 17:41

you have added some nodes just for the viewer, but not for the composite node (which is responsible for render output)

  • $\begingroup$ It's cool, but the HDR doesn't appear in the final render. Why is that? $\endgroup$ – Micah Vera Apr 7 at 18:29
