Im want to make an object glow and when i hit the e tab for the glow intensity the glow control was disabled how do i get that back so i can adjust the glow of the surface ?

you just click enable glow!

there are two controls for glowing too, one in the advanced tab in the surface editor and the other in the processing tab on the effects panel

Well, and you also have to set a luminous value in the surface editor to control the amount of glow.

worth noting that setting the luminosity value on a surface will make it emit light if you're using radiosity, otherwise it will look bright but won't physically emit any light on the surrounding area.

How do i make the searchlight beam effect? I have been expermenting with the volumetrics but now where the beam should be and where the light should strike my object is now black , sort of a void where light should be. It shows up in viper but not after rendering.:confused:
