I am striving to create a convincing neon sign for the intro to a program I have cut. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to do this in Motion, links to tutorials on the subject, etc.?

Thanks in advance.

Search the After Effect forums for NEON. We see the topic often. The question is confused by the needs for simulation of a realworld object or to deliver an incorrect but conventionally accepted version of "neon."

Needlessly pedantic entry: Stimulated electrons inside a glass tube either excite the enclosed gas (neon is just one of many) to glow or they cause a coating on the inside of the tube to glow. The glow is not atmospheric; there is no halo around a neon tube unless there's dust or water vapor in the air.

Visit a few neon signs and take a close look at how they're glowing.

This is my standard sigfile so do not take it personally: "For crying out loud, read the freakin' manual."
