Back-lighting letters

(Cscartdept) #1

Is it possible to ad an emitter that would create this effect or am I stuck using a bitmap/texture image?

To further describe my goal - I'm trying to back light some metal letters with neon to create a halo.


Maybe you could duplicate and offset the mesh slightly, and use an emission map and/or bloom to create the halo?

Here's my super quick and dirty attempt:

I did something similar to but in different software and different material settings.

I'm really no expert. Maybe one of the Masters can help. @shaderbytes etc. ?
