I am making a lamp but whan I goto reanslate it, its not translateing the
glow and I cant figure out why.  So heres the code. So if you can help me it
would be a great help.

#declare Lamp =
union {
        // The glass part of the light
        sphere {
                <0,0,0>.5
                pigment { rgbt <.25,.25,.25,.5> }
                translate <0,5.15,0>
        }
        // The Metal cap on the light
        sphere {
                <0,.5,0>.125
                texture { GreenMetal }
                scale <2,1,2>
                translate <0,5.15,0>
        }
        // The light pole
        lathe {
                cubic_spline
                9
                <0,0> <.25,0> <.25,.5> <.125,1> <.125,2>
                <.25,3> <.125,4> <.25,4.75> <.5,4.75>
                texture { GreenMetal }
        }
        // The Light Glow
        light_source {
                <0,5.25,0>
                color White
                glow {
                        size .65
                        type 2
                }
        }
}

object { Lamp }
object { Lamp translate <5,0,0> }

You need to add a translate statement to the glow statement. Glows
do not translate to the position of the light_source and must be
manualy positioned to match.

P.S. This should have been posted in the unofficial patches group
since this is a feature not supported in the official version of
POV-Ray.

  It's a known limitation and it is being fixed.
