Lens of lights not lighting up??? [Friday Rant]

Hi, so how is it that there is no easy way to have a lens in a light fixture that takes the appropriate colour of the light and makes the lens that colour and also pays homage to the intensity of the light and what level it has been set to?!?!?!?!?

Happy for someone to show me how this is possible in a few easy steps, but i don't want to be told there is some 'work around' with 50,000,000,000 steps....

The Spotlight Lighting Device must have a lens object and that object needs to be grouped with the body. The Light info Record needs to be attached to the group. Most of the stock content has the object and the group. Editing the group keeps the LIR intact.

 

You'll need a Glow texture based on Object Attributes. You'll need a class for the lens object. Assign the class tot he lens, make sure all attributes are by class.

 

In the Spotlight prefs, In the Lighting Devices-Classes and Color tab check modify lighting instrument color and color field and house the class.
