How do I texture with an alpha applied to a glow effect?

Hi all,

I'm doing a nighttime city scene. My textures have varying degrees of brightness in the windows. I made an alpha to match these, which I'd like to use as a mask on the glow effect, so only those windows and not the whole texture will glow. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

You should just be able to map that texture to the Glow Intensity attribute of the material(s) (located under 'Special Effects' in the material node)... any reason that wouldn't work?

Of course this could also be done as a post-process in a compositing app, where it would be more efficient and easier to tweak.
