Orange glow effect?
show user profile  clockworkspence
I DON'T KNOW HOW TO REMOVE A POST FROM THE WRONG THREAD.
I WOULD LIKE THIS ON THE QUESTIONS NOT WORK IN PROGRESS.

Hi,

I've got a scene where a ball is surrounded by 6 smaller balls that are touching it around it's centre.
I have a white background and a white plane just under the ball to capture it's reflection.

The problem: I want to be able to put an orange glow around the main ball that doesn't effect the surrounding ones.

I've tried the glow effect both in the standard effect dialogue and video post but the video post one doesn't show up on a white background and the standard glow effect looks too washed out and effects the other six smaller balls.

Here is a render with the glow simply added to a background image but as you can see the reflection plane cuts some of it out.
