Re-did the "Render Exposure" setting on this. It now supports glows around bright objects (in this case, the light on Rudolf's nose) for the manual settings like "Darker", "Darkest", etc.

* The tiny tiny red illuminator is to the left of the sphere.

so this illuminator against black gives the glow effect?

There's a glow around bright objects that are against a black background.

Illuminators are invisible lights, so you wouldn't see that, just the objects it illuminates. In this case, the elk has a sphere as his nose. An illuminator is next to it.

So will this only work against black. Things glow against a host of colors.

It's not just black. Things glow when the dynamic range of colors is too great to display in 8 bits (per channel) that can be displayed on the monitor. So anytime you have something very bright in a scene with large dark areas, you'll get glowing (or not, depending on what Render Brightness setting you use).
