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"

Use a post process volume, you can set the tint and bloom intensity (just as an example there are other ways of course) in this video I set the intensity to around 1000 (just for demo purposes here) and have a tint added as well:

But can I see then the other objects also, or is this bloom so bright, that I only see the lightsource?

Yes you can set it up so you can see the other objects I threw that together real quick just to demo the basics... it will require some customizations and tweeking but using a post process effect is how you would achieve that look and using blend weights will allow you to "flash" between normal view and the effect.
