Good catch; that has likely been missing since I first setup the account in

I have a scene or two planned that should put it through its paces. :)

It is surprising, both because Glows look the way the do, and because I had
thought there was perhaps a greater tie between the two functions due to
your previous mention that resolving the glow bug was related to scattering
media in some way.

How do glows work? Is it like the fog keyword? They tend to have a fog sort
of effect on their own without media or fog.

It may be interesting at a later date to make them an actual volumetric
effect if they do not work that way currently.
