    We're trying to use the Neon effect to outline buildings in a city. The city is at real world scale. However, the Neon effect seems to drop off after a certain distance.

    Here, the city is scaled down to .5 to minimize the problem. I've gone down as small as .2; however, we're prefer to work with the assets at real world scale.

    Is there a way to extend the Neon effect? I've noticed that other effects do not seem to have this issue. Thank you.

    Hey,

    I'll try to test this in a similar scene. Will let you know about the results.

      Greatly appreciated! Just FYI, the mesh in the photo is about 4.25 km wide and 10.25 km long (scale set to .5, however). Kind regards,

        So, after digging deep into this I can confirm that it's not a fixable issue because of the performance restrictions. I'll still be looking for alternative workarounds but can't promise for an ETA. Sorry about that!

        • Why don't you make the neon lines thinner the further away an object is? that would at least allow one to blend the neon lines into nothingness, providing a smooth transition

            Nice catch. Luckily, Chameleon 9.0 is coming with distance based masking feature. It should be easier with this option.
