Light emitting windows
Hi everybody

We try to achieve a good looking effect for windows at night.
At the moment we got this:
(It's in the attachment^^)
Currently we use the glow effect and experimented with point/cone lights too. But to achieve a realistic looking effect for larger windows we need at least 2 cone lights. (the other attachment)
Is there a better way to do this?
For example: Is it possible to let a mesh/plane emit light?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions,

DoubleM

Pretty cool effect
Meshes planes can't emit light
Only lights can

Ok, thanks, so we'll have to use the cone lights.
I just hope it won't kill the fps completely^^
