How can I get a steel object to glow red?. It seems the glow filter is only set up to make glows the base color of the object. I suppose I could wrap transparent object around the other object and give it tranparency and a red color. But Im sure there must be way to change glow color.
How do I do it?

Under ENVIRONMENT Reflection Options, I added a red color that I painted in Photoshop. Then I tweaked the reflective numbers under BASIC Reflection. I wish I could show you the result - but I can't figure out how to post images.

Use the Corona plugin that comes with LW. :)

If I make a red environment map that would make the axe appear red (reflect red), but not glow red, right?

Ill try the Corona filter. Havent fiddled with that yet.

Also need to try the outside envelope object with tranparency and transparent edges.
