hm… thanks for the mesh-tip.
anyway, using a spotlight, was my first approach too, but it looked kind of dull…
i now added a halo-object with some flare effects. i’m still figuring out the best options but it looks quite promising so far…
only letdown is, that the halo isn’t animated, so it always has the same shape.
it would be nice if that could somehow be rotated.
btw. i tried adding a copy of the text as a halo object, so that the letters would have a glow effect to them - didn’t work though, because the vertices aren’t distributed evenly.
(the round shapes of the letters get a lot of verts, the straights none…)
Maybe someone knows a (non-manual) fix for that or another way to make the letters glow - but that’s secondary.
First i want to make those letters shine
