Creating a glow effect with 3D Studio Max r3
I created a simple glow to bring life to the burning candles by adding a “Lens Effect Filter”. You may create your own scene or download this MAX file at Here. I’m assuming that you know how to create the sphere and modify it to resemble the flame.Your image should look like the layout below.
Open the Material Editor. and create any material you like. I used a Organic yellow sponge but make sure you assign a Material Effects Channel to it which is located below the sample spheres, it is the seventh button from the left. Click it and then choose “1” from the flyout menu. Apply this material to the sphere
