glow bloom shader

Hi all,

does anybody know where I can find a glow or bloom shader?
I want to use it for glowing geometry not for textures so the included shaders probably won’t do the job, right?
Is it somehow possible to use HLSL shaders?

Thanks

Hi,

you can render your geometry to a texture, and then apply your shader
of preference.

try to search forum with ‘render to texture’ keywords – you should
find many nice examples. Also, checkout Andrew Bensons tasty recipes
on cycling74 site!

Hi nesa,

thanks a lot. I will try that. I thought that’s only possible by using a matrix over the CPU but this way it might be interesting.
Anyway do you know if HLSL Shaders can be used somehow?
