I've just finished rotoscoping a 250 frame section using the 4-point wireframe and when I went to turn on the neon effects, nothing showed up.

How do you add neon glow AFTER you have roto-ed your wireframe? I thought it was simply turned off.

Thanks for any help on this.

Double-check that the playhead isn't outside the effect. By default, the effect is only 20 frames long or so; you can continue keyframing beyond that point, but it won't show up until you extend the effect.

To extend the effect, simply drag it's out-frame to the right.

Thanks guys. I did try that, but the end frame would not drag out further.

Is there anything I should do to unlock it?

Make sure you have the Crop tool selected, from the upper left of the timeline.
