Hide "light" object

Hi

Probably a dum question, but is it possible to create an object with a emissive material, and hide the object, so only the light i visible?

Thanks

Hi Jorgensen,

Sure, just create Diffuse material, set emission and then set opacity to 0. Object will be invisible but preserve emission.

Excuse me, do we need to set the opacity to 0 of the material attached or the object?

i'm trying to redo this - create an object add a diffuse material, add emission material with blackbody emission, but when i change the opacity both the object and light disappears.

what am i'm doing wrong :-(

thanks
