Hey Everyone! In this video I will be showing you how to create a neon sign in blender. This is an easy process which most beginners can follow along. In the video I will demonstrate how to create the model for the neon sign, how to create the materials for the light and glass coating, as well as how to add a separate blur to each individual text object in the scene.
I hope you guys enjoy this tutorial and learn something new. Thanks for watching!
thanks for this nice tutorial. I can follow this tutorial without any problems until 12:20 till you set the nodegroup but after that how did you get back to the view with these GroupInput and Blur things on 12:24?
With the nodegroup selected you can press "tab" to toggle in and out of the group.
thank you very much
Good tutorial, but one thing you never see in a neon sign is sharp corners.
I've designed a fair number of neon signs for a guy I know who bends the tubes and I've assembled a fair few.
The devil is in the details!
You're right! If you want to make these neon signs truly realistic, you would need to change the font to something like comic sans, or manually add curves in edit mode.
