Issues with Neon

Post by IggyLItes » Mon Sep 07, 2020 5:09 pm

Hello all;

Pretty new to Sketchup, brand new to Twilight. I'm trying to create a neon effect on a sign for a business and having the hardest time. I managed to download the materials from way back when and they're still not really doing it. I managed to get some of it lit up on one render, and then gone the next time. Never the whole sign.

I used FollowMe on a circle to create the letters, plus some 3D text. There's 2 concentric rings and text inside, and sometimes one of the rings lights up, but it's been sporadic.

Anyone have any ideas of what I could possibly be missing here?

IggyLItes - you can send me a PM with the link, the scene will remain completely confidential.
Also, you can request help in the V2 section of the red carpet section so that your post is not public, if you prefer.

Subject: render help. times and other questions?
This post is about neon and volumetrics and contains an example scene.

see scene attached, the "bloom" in post-processing give the glowing letters look.
