(Misspelt title-- cant go back and edit it!) What I would like is a tutorial on a way to make realistic building window lights, for a night-time city-scope scene. How would I go about doing this? Would I use a texture? Would I create seperate textures for a window and use HDR lighting on them? Sorry, this thing just kinda has me perplexed, is all. Would really appreciate some help with this!

Cheers,
The Adaminator

Vroom seems to be the ticket for that: ...
Ummm, can't get to their site...
Look up "Vroom lightwave" to see what was possible. Says their account is suspended.

What I want to do is create the lighting effect in windows seen on many sci fi programs-- much like the effect seen on Stargate Atlantis in the city model. I would like to know how to recreate that effect in LW, suitable for a night-time city shot. Any recommendations?

The account has lapsed, but no one got any warning :(
It'll be back up soon.
