3D NEON TITLE SEQUENCE
This tutorial teaches you how to create seemingly 3D text made up of neon lights. Incorporating advanced camera movement, depth of field and animation to the titles, you can create an effective piece of motion graphics.
The text was created using no additional plug-ins. You can quickly edit the font/ text or colours within seconds, allowing you to use this for a variety of projects. Simple animations have been added to the text through the use of default plugins, such as 'echo', which gives off an 80′s look by causing multiple copies in the animation during quick zooms.
