The Bloom effect creates fringes of light extending from the borders of bright areas in an image, contributing to the illusion of an extremely bright light overwhelming the CameraA component which creates an image of a particular viewpoint in your scene. The output is either drawn to the screen or captured as a texture. More info
See in Glossary.
You can also use Lens Dirt to apply a full-screen layer of smudges or dust to diffract the Bloom effect. Modern first-person shooter games most commonly use this effect.
For more information on how to use the Bloom effect, see the BloomA post-processing effect used to reproduce an imaging artifact of real-world cameras. The effect produces fringes of light extending from the borders of bright areas in an image, contributing to the illusion of an extremely bright light overwhelming the camera or eye capturing the scene.
See in Glossary documentation in the Post-Processing package.
