I am stumbling my with through a project using blender. What I'm trying to do right now is have my Scene (which I've added to the Video Sequence Editor, along with a video clip) to be displayed above the video.
So far, so good. But now I want to get fancy. My Scene basically consists of silhouettes. Because sometimes the video is black or very dark, I want to put a glow around the whole rendered scene (i.e. all the non-transparent parts).
I tried using the Glow effect strip on my scene, but that seemed to wipe out the transparency of the scene -- the video stopped showing through. I might be missing some easy way to make this approach work.
(Glow exaggerated for clarity.)
I'm a newbie. I've been feeling around in the dark to try to make this work. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
