    My guess is you have a self illuminating material on the lense that is what you are seeing locally and that material doesn't work in the cloud?

    Indeed you would think that's the case but i dont use self illuminating materials.
    Got it working now but here's what i changed: the lighting fixture was an emit from line shape. I changed this to rectangular emit from shape. The difference here is when i nest the lighting fixture in a generic model i get the option to select: emit from shape visible in rendering. It does not work with emit from shape: linear.

    In the room you can see that the light is rendered but not the lighting fixture itself. In order to see the light i needed to change to emit from shape:rectangular.
