Glow material?

  • Hey Boris, 

    At this time there is no support for Bloom effect in Lens Studio but you can fake the effect easily which is more efficient also.

    What you can do is to create another mesh in front of the object that you want to have a glow and then create a texture and apply to that to make it looks like its glowing.

    For example I have a Torus that I want to have a glow effect on it. I create a cylinder around the torus and called it glow mesh.

    Then I create a glow texture for the mesh in photoshop. I used gradient to create this texture:

    Then you can bring them in Lens Studio and for the glow effect we need to create an unlit material and set the blend mode to normal and apply the glow texture to it.

    Then you need to play with the values to get to however you like to.

    As the result you can achieve the effects like this:
