When I try to use the glare in the compositing editor, the live viewport as well as single frames will render showing these RGB reflections/glare that I want.

The problem is, when I save the photo, the RGB reflections/glares disappear. How do I save and keep this effect the same as what the viewport shows me?

BlenderGlare_Viewport Showing Desired Effect


1 Answer 1


I was able to get the effect to save when I save the renders as .EXR filetype. Weirdly, when importing the .EXR into premier pro, the effect is lost again. However when I import it into Da Vinci Resolve, it works.

    $\begingroup$ yes it's a problem of alpha transparency, it removes the effect, there are some tricks to fix that though $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ How do you go about fixing that? The EXR thing I did will only work for animations - single frame renders still don't give me the same image as the viewport. $\endgroup$
