View Full Version : How to have Sunlight Glow with FG & GI

07 July 2011, 11:53 PM
Hi Guys,

I'm trying to light the scene, with portal lights shine through the glass and lit up the room with FG & GI, i also want a sun glow, so i tried with the physical sun & sky & just the directional light only, with FG & GI on, it just even out the light, I couldn't see any glow. Without FG & GI, there's a glow shine through the glass on the floor. is there anyway to solve it?

Thanks in advance.

Sun glow? Hmm...

The best way to control such things is to render your scene and also a mask pass (or separate render), then add the glow in postwork (Photoshop). You'll save tons of time and have far, far more control over your glare.

Are you trying to mimix the glare a camera sees when photographing say, a window in full sunlight?
