Glow/Bloom effect ideas

How might I make a glow or bloom effect over my entire scene? Like, general ideas of what I ought to do because I really don’t know where to start.

I am new to OpenFrameworks and especially to GLSL but trying to learn.

Hi there!

Since you are new to OF and GLSL, maybe it’s better if you search around the ofxAddons website. It could get a bit tricky trying to get around everything at once.

ofxPostProcessing and ofxFx both have what you need, among other fxs, with which you can easily play and mess around.

Thank you for the response. :smile:
I couldn’t get the bloom effect in ofxPostProcessing to work. I am not sure if I’m doing something wrong or if it’s not working with my version of OpenFrameworks.

Hopefully I’ll get it figured out.
