Changing the Glow color
Hi guys,

Is there a way to change the color of the material glow color from the typical white to any other color?

Can this be done via a glow map?

Thanks.

RE: Changing the Glow color
Hey, happy new year.
As far as i know the glow color is taken from the final rendered screen color of the pixels that are supposed to glow. That means that it is affected by the material color, the light, the ambient and the fog color altogether.
There isn't a more custom way to affect the glow color without touching the source or without making your own post process shader... http://www.esenthel.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=8297.

Thanks georgatos, this is very helpful! I thought glow was a separate material-based glow.

Hi,

That is correct, glow map is only the intensity (1 channel), the actual color is from the color map.
