View Full Version : halo effect

08 August 2007, 03:51 AM
Another day, another request...

I'm looking to create a sort of a halo effect for my renders. What I have is an object with no background. I've placed the object on a very light-grey (white-ish) background so it stands out nicely.

Now I'd like to create soft edges, as if the light background is pure light surrounding the object. I'd like to achieve this without blurring the object, as that causes the object to bleed into the background, which creates a dirty halo. What I'm looking for is to have the background bleed into the object.

It seems like I saw a tutorial somewhere for this last year, when I didn't think I'd need it. Any suggestions on creating this effect? Thanks in advance...
