As a follow up to this discussion, here’s my attempt at creating a neon text effect.
NOTE: This is ONE way to do it, if anyone have a better method, feel free to add it to this discussion.

neon-sign_black-BG.mlt (7.9 KB)
I used the Neon 80s font, available for free on dafont.com
- I used 2 Glow filters with different settings, but you can deactivate/edit one or the other to vary the intensity of the effect.
- The Size, Position & Rotate filter can be activated and used to position and resize the text in your project.
And here’s an example of the effect used in a project:
I realize that this effect can be hard to reproduce for beginners, so don’t hesitate to ask questions.
