Glowing Material

HI there, I'm trying to mimic this texture look on these DNA strands and can't get it quite right. Any advice? I've tried the glow effect, and no dice.

C4D's glow isn't the greatest, but it is capable of that :)

You need a white luminant material with a green glow channel, and a suitable fall-off distance. What that doesn't give you is the light rays type thing.

But that is possible too. There's a tutorial on it somewhere. Oh, here it is.

This looks like it is done in post, after effects, trapcode (or is it Red Giant?) starglow.

Maybee you can fake it with a lot of tiny lights that produce a lensflare.
