Lights are dimmer when placed with Cloner Object

I'm trying to do a basic stadium lights design for the background. The light has a lens effect turned on with the Hi-8 glow preset, looks fine when rendered but when placed in a cloner object, the lights are dimmed and slightly blurred. I've read that some have placed the lights in a null object, then place it in the cloner to remedy this but it doesn't seem to work for me. Currently on C4D 12.

Any idea why the cloner object causes the lights to be dimmer? I've must've overlooked something, any help will be appreciated, thanks!

When you put a light in a cloner, it's brightness and color are driven by the parameters in the cloner's transform tag.

uncheck Use Light Parameters in the Lens settings of the light
