In this new free  After Effects video tutorial, we will learn how to reproduce from any text a quite realistic neon effect. 

  • Applying the effect "CC Vector Blur" and setting options to make it look like neon, or plastic effect on your text
  • Create masks along a typo automatically
  • Using the Stroke effect to animate randomly with expressions the light intensity inside the neon
  • Color grading and lighting effects to give the final aesthetics of our video

Using this technique, you'll be able to easily create  and animate neon logos with your own text. I hope you'll enjoy this tutorial!
