Question for a TC Pro 18:

If trying to show an LED (Light emitting Diode) lit from within, much like a incandescent light bulb does, what term(s) listed seem to be most affective, I’ve been adjusting setting on “Render Scene Illuminations” but they don't seem to change much at all.
 
Thanks,

Bob

Some time ago, Dean made me aware of a Lightworks Shader(?) named "Glow" in the "Transparency" category.
Looks/works pretty good.
This is all ?? to/by me-- I barely know what I'm talking about when it comes to this stuff.

"Glow" is a transparency that fades toward the edges of the assigned object. Edges can be more transparent than the central part, or more opaque. It doesn't glow unless you do other things to it.

...Like assign a Luminance...
