With blumming effect is more better.

By the way, adjusting the slider during real-time rendering leads to crash.

Simple a control comparison.

Obviously, that SL has expanse for improvement. ;)

Thats really interesting.. I tried the effect in the past but it effects the entire scene and not just the part of the object..

I cerated a button light in Photoshop and added it as a Decal.. Its not right since it does not look like the light is on, but at least i am getting somewhere. Its really not want I want.. The bright neon is what I want to achieve. I have been researching how to create a neon light effect.

There is no doubting that the light effects glows, but it just doesn't glow like a neon light does..

Regarding your crashing.. I get that too when adding Emitter during Real Time Render or adjusting causes crashing as you have found..

This time I applied a Decal png image I made in Photoshop, then I added a spot light onto it.. Its getting better.. This option allows the image to be rendered in a Round Table..

@Destiny Your idea with decals was good. But in my opinion you went in the wrong direction. Spot light?
As you know, various materials can be applied to the decal. Maybe emitter too? I decided to check it out.

I created a scene from primitives with several decals. For decal I used b/w images. I changed decals material to emitter.

And wow! The result was very impressive.

I added textured glass.

Cool! Of course, this method is slightly limited. But it works.

By the way, as you can see the glass material still does not work properly. IOR works more like Index Of Reflection but not Refraction.
And of course caustic. It's just missing. :(

Although no. I'm wrong. There is something there. ;) Just have to wait long and not very convincing.
Same scene, same HDR. Left - not SL, right - SL

Its really interesting experimenting with this.. I can achieve an OK results but not a realistic one.. Or what I would call a realistic result.. I can achieve an LCD glow as in a digital clock OK but not a little neon light, thats if it is a neon.. Its in the top of my hand set phone and I see the lights I like in the back of some cars or truck lights.. Like a Christmas tree red light..
