i have modelled a light bulb with clear glass and i want to light up the filament(the springy wire inside the bulb). Now i know how to emit light from an object but i wanna have some glow around the filament itself just like the one in the picture attached to this message if possible please give me some settings. thank you!

Probably not. But you could try emitting some particles from the wire and give them a material with lots of incandescence. I don't know if it's ever been tried before, but it could work.

Other than that you'd probably have to resort to After Effects or Photoshop.

Good luck,

I'm not a very profficient maya user, but I think I came across a texture, surfaceshader, that creates the glow you're describing.

"Special Effects" attributes are available for Anisotropic, Blinn, Lambert, Phong, and PhongE materials. Just bump up the "Glow Intensity" and you'll get what you're looking for. You don't need much. I usually start around .125 or .25. It starts to get pretty exaggerated pretty quickly.
