Here is my take on it with quick GI.

It's a luminescent material with transparency and reflection.  A visible point light could be added if you like that bright spot at the one end.  The reason I did it this way is because render engine like it when there is less bounces.  Total internal reflection to get this like would happen in real life would kill a lot of render engines.

Thats a very nice solution, iv learnt something from that so thanks for sharing.

  • wow! thanks for all the replies. you guys had given me some hints on how to achieve this. the natevplas set up achieves the result perfectly. Unfortunately 

    I don't have redshift. (is not just the gradient, but the lights in the extrude too) thanks to all!

    Hopefully you can create materials that do the same thing. Basically you just need a little SSS in both materials and some roughness in the reflection and refraction channels for the text material.

    The solution I posted was a c4d file, but should also work with any render engine.  You also don't need GI unless the stick is close to another surface.
