How do you make a "glowing" light effect like this?
>>
>>540760
in which program ?

>>540760

That particular picture was most likely rendered using either VRay or Octane, both of which allow for simulation of lens effects like bloom or glare.

That being said, you could also just use Photoshop to fake the effect in post production.

Either in 3dsMax with Vray or Blender with Cycles.

How do you do it in Photoshop? Any particular tool to use?
>>
>>540766
You should use an external tool like ps or ae for all the post processing, so you can control all the individual effects with stacked layers. Otherwise you cant do anything with the render once it comes out with a huge glare crowding everything

image>adjustments>levels (make very dark)
filter>blur>gausian blur
layer blending mode>screen

Thanks, it did the trick.

I'm not very familiar with After Effects but if you do a bloom effect, is it using that same principle as Photoshop (duplicating, darkening, bluring, blend mode screening) or does it have another algorithm)?
What I'm asking is would the result be better than with Photoshop?

download arionfx for photoshop and save your renders as .exr when using it
