Glow Layer, Alpha and Opacity Fresnel Parameters


Recommended Posts


Is it possible to use the new glow layer with material alpha and the opacity fresnel parameters? Seems as though every time I enable opacityFresnelParameters or alpha on a material, the glow no longer works. 

See this playground: https://www.babylonjs-playground.com/#LRFB2D#13

If you uncomment lines 12-17 the glow layer stops having an impact.

Am I doing something dumb?

Hello @jps0611,

Unfortunately, neither glow or highlight layers are supporting blending operations required for the fresnel.

The glow layer only account for emissive data (Huge perf win) whereas bloom is based on the luminance of the point after applying lighting.

Do not hesitate if I am not clear enough.
