emmiting objects

i’d love to know how to make emitting objects but i never got it to work. IIRC it technically does not work in yafray but does in the internal renderer w/ radiosity. however, every time i try it never illuminates anything around the object. just a white shape and everything else is black.

do i really need extra lamps here 'n there pointing at the object or is it really possible to have a real emitting object?

Click the Rodiosity button in the render panel in the buttons window

i did. read my first post.

ok i finally got it but how do i make them case shadows?

well i just tried it one more time in yafray and whad’ya know!

indigo isn’t even a question
