The Lens Effects Glow dialog lets you add a glowing aura around any assigned object. For example, for an exploding particle system, adding a glow to the particles makes them seem as though they are brighter and hotter.

The Lens Effects Glow module is multi-threaded and will take advantage of multi-processing machines.
