3DS MAX 2010 - Lens Effect Glow on one side of a closed spline?
show user profile  gailandt
Greetings all,
I’m in the middle of a big project at work and after hours of searching help files, forums and Autodesk’s web site and am still stuck. I created a closed spline and am attempting to add a video post lens effects Glow effect to it. Creating the glow is no problem, however, I need the spline to glow on one side only, not both. Like say, a ring that glows on the outside or inside only. Is this possible and if so, how? I hope that there is s simple solution ;-) Thanks greatly in advance all!

how about a matt/shadow material applied to an object covering the parts you don't want glowing
not tested so might glow through or cause other problems
