I was trying to render a circle that I would later add glare to in compositing. When I rendered the image with the compositing, it looked fin in blender, however when I saved the image it did not save the glare and it was just a white circle. Any ideas on why this is happening?

Blender vs Saved Image


  • $\begingroup$ did you check compositing in post processing? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ save as OpenEXR, it looks like PNG doesn't correctly save the glare effect over the alpha channel $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ make sure that you've enabled transparency for the OpenEXR image when you open it with your software $\endgroup$
