    Well - if you've modelled the light bulbs, I guess it should just be a matter of turning them on?

    I'm having trouble with this too, but I feel like I'm getting close. I've modelled bulbs all round, and I've added a luminance (direct illumination) to the little capsules, which is meant to be the springy filament.

    Its still not complete and I don't know if I will stick with this method or try another, but I hope it helps. Aventador's lights look a bit more trickier.

    this job is way too much complicated on the aventador due to the fact that there is absolutely no references of the inside of the light part of the taillight in the aventador

    you nailed it, you could try adding small sphere lights for each reflector, or you could model small bulbs. i chose any kind of bulb, for me its always a guessing game and going with what i do know. my lights ain't perfect so i ain't claiming to be an expert in this :confused:. Trial and error ;)

    I don't know which setup of software you are using, but this tutorial is something simple for this type of LED headlights.


    You also can check his channel for another type of tutorials, he \in my country Spaz is he\ try different types of lightening for better results.
