I've just recently switched over to Resolve from Color and am looking for advice on blooming the highlights. I have a shot where I'd like to blow out the windows a good bit – large windows filling most of the background.
This is what I've done so far:
- pulled a key on the windows in a layer node
- blurred that
- applied layer with "add" or "screen" blend mode
It works a bit, but I'm not really getting any real dispersion like you would with some diffusion or something. The soft clip isn't giving me much either. I'd like to get something streaky going, but I'm new to this app.
