Our old friend Stuart Christensen returns with another tutorial for creating a back-light or a rim light shader in maya that is super simple and works great in many situations like the one that Stuart shows here with text.

For his video shown above, Stuart Christensen notes” “Sometimes you need a super simple back light effect for text or objects and this short tutorial by Stuart Christensen will teach you this cool little technique that you can stuff in your “bag of tricks” to mesmerize your friends and pets! As always, imagination is essential to really make this your own!”
