How to create a glowing orb in 3ds Max 9?

Hi,
I was wondering if anyone knew how to make a glowing orb in max 9. I am looking to create it using an omni light so it is keyable. I don't want to use Video Post but want to achieve a floating glowing ball of light. Can some one help??
Cheers!

Hi,
check the user manual under VOLUMETRIC LIGHTING [or under the omni light's Atmospheres & Effects parameters]. Dont forget to change the decay type to inverse.
Cheers!
