How to: Achieve a bloom effect?


Recommended Posts

There's this bloom effect in many sci-fi franchises. Basically, a bloom effect is applied to lighting it make it look like it's glowing. However, the particular bloom effect I'm trying to figure out how to do is... stretched horizontally, for lack of a better term. Does anyone know how to do this?

I haven't been able to find a picture yet, let's see...

 

Ah, here we go. It's the sun effect in the center, basically.

It's a surprisingly simple technique....

 

1. New layer.

 

2. Create a large circular opaque to transparent gradient in the color you want.

 

3. Select All the layer.

 

4. Use the Move tool to squash it into a thin line.

 

5. Blur to your liking.

Now I feel stupid. :P I had no idea it was that simple. I managed it a little while ago using a long, complicated series of stuff including bidirectional blur and fragmentation. And then I learn this.

 

Thanks, EER!

I have a feeling ASH posted it a long, long time ago.

 

Here's what it might look like on a black background.
