Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

How to make light source bloom?

How do I set a Light to bloom when viewed directly. Example when a spot light shines directly on your face you'll see a bright source that makes looking at other things hard. Kind of like how you'll feel when someone points a flashlight directly at your face.

Basically I'm using a spotlight as torch but it wont shine in your face even you look directly at it at close distance

Damn! I'm still stupid, Thanks, that's a very obvious answer yet it didn't crossed my mind :)

Also will there be light emitting materials enabled in coming releases?

As a supplement I'll suggest to add a covering mesh on the side so it wont bloom until the desired angle

Also keep in mind that your image is showing more than just bloom - the lens flare is a large component in this effect.

What sort of control I have over that?
