Billboarding around the Z-axis


#1

Issue: When using a billboard group node and inputting the values [0,0,1] the result is not as expected.

com-optimize%20(1)

Affecting: ZapWorks Studio

Workaround:

  1. Create a group node that will house the billboard group node and rotate it by 90 degrees in the X-axis.

com-optimize%20(2)

  1. Place/create a billboard group node within the group node created in Step 1 and set the rotation around the Y-axis [0,1,0].

com-resize

  1. Add a third group node within the billboard group node from Step 2 and rotate it by -90 degrees in the X-axis.

com-resize%20(1)

  1. Place the content you want billboarded around the Z-axis in this final group created in Step

com-resize%20(2)

I was going to ask if this was fixed in the Ver 5.
