To insert a neon light, click on New Light from the Virtual Navigation tab in the Layout window. You can change its properties, including luminosity and position, from either the Layout window or Navigation window.
This type of light consists of a linear beam oriented either in 2D or 3D (for more information, see this link).
Once your light is inserted into your project, the program will ask you to trace a line that represents the length and position of the neon by clicking with your mouse.
Next, a properties window for the light will open:
By clicking on the Advanced button, you will open another window with advanced settings for your neon (more information available at this link).
To change the radius of the neon, change the value highlighted below. You will see this change only in the Navigation window or in your final rendering.
We recommend unchecking the “Visible” box so you will not see the cylinder simulating the neon in the final rendering image.
