Glowing Orbs

this is now probably my favorite piece i’ve done so far. its so simple yet so cool…

It is cool other than the fact that the red glow is missing from the reflections.

yeah, i noticed that, too. :stuck_out_tongue:

i guess its some blender bug…

Halos don’t show up on reflections.

well…
thats kinda stupid. :stuck_out_tongue:

maybe it could be fixed in 2.50?
maybe?

use an emit material.

Or use a red ring and render in a different layer and add a composite blur.

uhh…
