Here is a bloom effect that uses a canvas object... Lots of fun...Go ahead and check it out.

Note: If you do this, make sure you set the Canvas object to grab the layout BEFORE. After will produce the "Hall of Mirrors" and the full screen will "bloom"

Very nice but ... Isn't it better if you simply apply a bloom effect to a layer instead of a canvas?

Layer -> Layer effects: blur horizontal + blur vertical + glow

There's a difference between bloom and glow. Bloom takes the whiter/brighter parts of the image and blows them out with a bit of blurring and additive blending. A layer glow would just blur and glow everything, which isn't a real bloom.

When I load the .cap it gives me an error ('Blur Motion.fx is missing') and I made sure I have your contrast plus plugin. Is Blur Motion a separate plugin that I need to find?

(On a side note, you misspelled 'contrast' in your plugin, you put 'constrast'. Not like its a big deal or anything, just kinda unprofessional.)

Hi,

Can you post an explanation of exactly whats happening here please.

I love the effect, but I'm not sure I quite understand how you're achieving it.

Thanks
