Is there any way to do it? I want to make a glow.spr a model so i can set a path for it and make it a floating light ball.

Err... changing a sprite into a model? No... there's no program that can do that.

But you could save the sprite as a bitmap (using Sprite Explorer or a similar program), create a model and apply that bitmap to it as a skin, then compile the model. However, it's not possible to let such a model follow a path, as far as I know, that is. You could animate the model accordingly, or just use a world brush to simulate your sprite and make a func_train of it. Well, just go ahead and try out...

1. it's hard to do that
2. it's not going to look good
3. it's so ridiculus that it may just going to happen :D

Here's one method of faking this:
Create a func_train and let it follow the desired path. Make it invisible.
Create an env_laser that targets the train.
Now set the end sprite.
Issues:
  • The movement is very laggy.
  • The sprite is in additive/glow mode and there's not way to change that.
  • There mustn't be any obstacles between the laser and the train.
  • Same applies for the path of the train.
Another method:
Again create a train, this time make it hollowed.
Place an env_shooter inside the train and set up the sprite.
Before the train starts, trigger the env_shooter.
The movement might look a bit better than in the other method.
Issues:
  • Again there mustn't be monsters/players on the path.
