Hello everyone.

I am looking into trying to create lights that appear like the one seen in this .

As you can see it is not a flat luminescent texture but is more like a faint gradient. is that all it is?

Can anyone help me get lighting like this?

Thanks!

Dan Mountford

Can't say for sure but I did a quick little test and it looks like a Fresnel shader in the color and reflections give you similar look with something good for the reflections. It also looks like they took a lot of the saturation out of the image except for the color highlights,lens flare, and adding an overall blue hue.

The top light looks like a gradient though in the luminance channel and I cant use both fresnel and gradient. Could the glow as well just be a post effect in after effects?

The glow could be a post effect it would allow for more control. If you use a layer shader you can use any number of items on top of each other but it would be kind of redundant to use both maybe,

Looks like post effects to me.
