You create the lightning bolt as geometry in your 3D modeling application and then apply an Indigo emitter material to it.


I am sure there may be other approaches to accomplish that task. If I remember correctly there is a plugin available for Blender that helps with creating the geometry for realistic looking lighting bolts.
