I thought of an interesting idea, imo.
Instead of applying the bloom halation after the scanlines I’m going to try and apply it before the scanlines. And then do the diffusion after the scanlines.
So it’ll look like this.
Sample blur passes like normal, apply blur passes and halation adjust (setting) to the image, then apply the scanlines on top of that, then finish off the bloom by applying the diffusion after the scanlines to blur.
Edit: So that was fun, it’s not worth taking a screenshot of right now as it needs tweaked but you kinda end up with a result like crtglow.
