Hello everyone.
Just found out about tube lights today.
I was not using it because I thought the noise was like part of its effect smile
I tried the above advise about increasing the sample.
It worked great in taking the noise off.
Just got 1 question though.
Is there a trick in lessening the render time?
Thanks a lot.

Depends on your render settings which depends on what is in the scene. Without knowing what the settings for the Area light and render settings it is hard to advise.

I did this in DAZ Studio almost three years ago…

You can use surface lights and cylinder primitives to achieve a neon effect pretty easily.
