Ancient looking four digit display using nixie tubes.

This blend is prepared for animation. The camera follows the CameraPath curve and looks at an empty, behind the tubes All textures are procedural. The displayed number comes from a single input node group (NixieValue) that can be easily key framed The figures are a combination of a smaller filament surrounded by a bigger where the glow (volumetrics) show. You can see the full movie here:

    For some reason when I try to animate a countdown, in the rendered images the initial zero in the 1's tube displays but after that, no numbers display for the rest of the duration of the countdown. I have no idea why!

    Anyone got any ideas?
