Creating a Blurred Light Effect

Is it possible to make this type of effect? I tried playing around with Directional, Spot, and Point but wasn’t able to recreate this.

Another common trick is to use a billboard, a camera oriented sprite that includes a halo image. Here is a tutorial for that:

Thanks! This seems like what I need. Will get back to you if any difficulties

Hi @Leonidas
