Unhappy Canīt emission to work. (newbie)

I just got my copy of pm:workstation and Im playing around with the basic properties,
but i canīt get emission to work.
I have the checkbox checked and have tried with different values both with and without luminosity with no result. The object doest not emitt any light.
Am I forgetting something?

This only works if you have at least a little bit of luminosity, then you can turn the emission value up as much as you want.
But be sure to have GI (Monte Carlo) active - normal Raytracing doesn't account for emissive object.
You can also watch the video tutorial from Chickega - a list of all available tutorials can be found at

Thumbs up Thanks guys!

Thanks for the quick replay. I had a feeling it had something to do with the render settings, but I didnt know what.
Great with a tutorial!
