Neon lights in Blender 2.57

This is the result of today's experiments with emission, curves, and indirect illumination in Blender 2.57. I did a bit of compositing with compositing nodes. Just a test.

I think it has a certain yin and yang quality to it...


  1. Hello.
    Thank you for sharing your work. I am a total 3D newby but i am trying to create a neon light that interacts with animated objects. The manuals all talk of radiosity that seems to nô longer exist in blender 2.57. As you seem to have solved this problem, would you be kind enough to give detailed explaination of how you did it?
    Many thanks

  3. Hi Christopher,
    I think that would be a good idea. Just give me a few days to put together a mini-tut on this subject :)

  4. I look forward to you reply.
