I'm trying to make a wire frame around a box have RGB colors emitting from it, well they don't have to emit, just 'glow' with the colors Red Green and Blue, RGB. it's for a small project, I wan't a RGB lighting strip kind of like they show on Strix boxes for graphics cards. I'm doing all this in the Cycles engine

If I understand correctly: You are trying to do something like this

enter image description here

  1. Create cube (or leave default cube when starting Blender)
  2. Duplicate it (Shift + D)
  3. Scale it up a little bigger
  4. Subdivide the cube for more wire frame lines
  5. Under modifier tab choose wireframe
  6. For the wireframe materials copy the below set up.

enter image description here

  1. After rendering the image go to your compositor and add a glare node like below. I normally do compositing in Photoshop and After Effects so I am not to good with Blender Compositor but this should be you semi close.

enter image description here

  1. You can also add a streak node to make it look more like Strix

EDIT: IF you want to animate it

There are a few ways to do this, I am not sure exactly what you are trying to do but you can add a mapping node and animate the position by hitting "i" for the keyframes.

  • $\begingroup$ this worked great! thanks, but now I'm wondering how to make this animated, so the lights go across it. $\endgroup$ – Lectro Bolt Nov 10 '17 at 18:17
  • $\begingroup$ Well there are a few ways to do this, I edited the answer to include a very simple way. If you want to get more complex I would watch this youtube.com/watch?v=K2WTH016rfk $\endgroup$ – icYou520 Nov 10 '17 at 19:00
