Billboard creation workflow

Recommended Posts

I want to create fake lensflares for lights in the scene.

So I thought using billboards for that.

Manually creating them is quite painful as I cannot SHIFT+Drag duplicate them in the Billboard object itself.

Can I create some dummies and then use the ADD FROM CHILDREN function?

Cant figure out how that works.

Whats the best way to do so?

We have lens flares in the light options. They didn't work for you?

You can create a hierarchy from billboard objects by using clone function or manual placement. Then click on "Add from children" — this will merge all children objects into the parent billboard.
