glow through refractive material


I have a scene which has a glass lampshade with a refractive/transluscent glass material added to it, and inside of this there is a lightbulb object with an emissive material. I cant get the glow from the buulb to be visible through the glass lampshade. Is there a trick to this, or is it not possible?



You can try faking it by giving the lamp shade an emissive texture that makes it look like it’s being lit by that light.
