under 360 options menu(SW2011 sp1.0), i am struggling to control bloom in an educated way.  does anyone have a better idea of how it works?  help says that bloom setpoint controls the number of items that bloom applies to, but no explanation of what "items" are.  does this mean pixels, faces, bodies, parts, lights?  I have no idea, it doesn't tell you.  this number is a percentage and the default value seems to be 72 (arbitrary if you ask me).  It appears bloom only works on light colored faces, but i may be wrong.  I have a black part and maxing out bloom doesn't seem to do anything to the rendering.
