Here's the tree with lights on it. This scene has no other lights other than
those on the tree. Any suggestions?

Excellent Steve! Looks very nice!
The needles have exactly that kind of reflection you would expect, perhaps a
little plastic-like, but that is not really an issue IMO.
I would suggest a little halo around the lights, either with the glow plugin
of Sylvain, or with the flare plugin(s)?

Thank you.
I tried using the glow plugin, and rendering was slowed down so much it
would take all day.
I tried out the lense flare that I already had in moray and it wouldn't
work. It says Povray cannot open inc file. I think maybe I'm missing
something. Where is the download site for lense flare?

Or you could throw my 'haze' material around the tree and
use the lights themselves for the glows.  (Or make a second
set that interacts with media with different properties).

Hmmm...
You need the stuff by Nathan Kopp I believe (NKFlare at:
http://nathan.kopp.com/pov-ray.htm ). And there is also the LensFX to be
downloaded from the Moray site (which I prefer) which includes All of Chris
Colefax's different lenses. If I remember well, it is said what you need and
where to put it.
But, you are right, glows and flares render more slowly, especially with a large
number of them... Hmm... What is media going to do, though?

Thomas,
Thanks for the info. I tried both of them and although they produce some
very nice effects, neither of them can be made part of a csg, which means
that each one would have to be positioned with each light individually,
which I have neither the time nor the patience to do. I've been
experimenting with media, too, but have not succeeded with that yet. I will
upload the .mdl file to the yahoo group in case you or anyone else wants to
experiment with it.

Tim,
Thank you for the suggestion. After much experimentation with your haze
material, I've found something that seems to work: a sphere around each
light, with haze, absorption adjusted to
-0.01, and scattering adjusted to rgb .001.
I'll post a picture in a few hours, after it renders.
