Neon glows effect

Recommended Posts

I think he''s referring more to a soft-edge glow. The sort of thing called bloom in traditional photography.

I remember someone on here discussing one method using a quad overlaid on the screen with simple pixel shader gaussian blur on the pixels written to the quad''s texture. I have no idea how to go about implementing that, though.
