Objects with glow now with Jagged edges where it wasnt earlier

Recommended Posts

I dont know how, or what caused this but any insight will be helpful. One of my objects has a glow effect and for some odd reason i looked at them again an hour 3 later and its definitely not normal SL Glow, and as you see the glow is at 22, it appears its only reading the full bright but as if the Glow effects are disabled. any help would be truly appreciated

You say your glow is at 22. It is actually at 0.22 which is "nothing" really.   If you can, just turn the glow up.  Can't think of why that would happen if you didn't touch it :D.      Cube on the right at 22.   This is using the Firestorm viewer.

Change to graphics settings, such as ALM off or choosing a different graphics preset? Or some TPV's have options about what to do with glow and alpha when ALM is on or off.

right and 0.22 is glowy enough and you can see its jagged to where yours is smooth and glowy

maybe your fullbright on is the reason, Chic's doesn't have fullbright.

I can't reproduce it either. I thought maybe it had something to do with EEP but here's a test using the standard viewer. This is fullbright, glow 0.22, default blank texture and a tint similar to yours:

I do get jagged edges when the object is selected, like in your second picture but that is only to be expected and shouldn't matter.

My test object is a hollow prim, not a mesh, but I can't see how that can make a difference either.

ALM doesn't make any difference and I think we can rule out changes in the anti-aliasing settings too since that would have affected all objects in the scene.

Does the problem persist after you relog?

If you're on Firestorm:

  1. Alt-P (Phototools)
  2. "DoF/Glow" tab
  3. Click the "D" (default) button on everything under Glow Settings

This sounds like the third time someone posts about this issue in recent memory.

0.22 = 22(%). That's a lot of glow, not "nothing." It gets even more intense during default "midday" windlight. It's the least bright during the night because glow is affected by the emissiveness of the surface, and the surface shown in the OP is fullbright.

The issue observed here happens when Glow Width is set to quite low values (sub 1.0)

Example of width 0.1:

Yes, I know. I play with glow settings a lot.

But if a random user had been tweaking them (or they get randomly changed for some unlikely reason), it's easier to just guide them to set everything to default.

I'm not a fan of the nuclear option unless its absolutely necessary
