Hi

It's a LightWave 7.5c question....

If and how or any alternative is there to make any polygonal object in Layout to a light-source?
I have an energy savings-lightbulb in the shape of a helix which needs to flare up (with light)

Can anyone point me in the right direction how I can do this or even fake that effect?

Thanks

otherwise try and use a IEs light.together with high luminosity on the helix bulb, and activate glow in the bulbs surface panel, activate glow in the image processing aswell.
