The latest update of the PyPrp Blender plugin is here, and it has two new and exciting functions you've all been waiting for!

ViewFaceModifiers (sprites)
Viewfacemodifiers are used to make objects always face the camera.
Think of that main imager in the watchers pub...
But more importantly: Lamp Glares!
Finally the lights in ages can come to life a little more!

Cameras
Tired of always having the same 3rd person cam follow you around the ages?
With the new update we have 4 new camera types:
  • Fixed Cameras
  • Circle Cameras
  • Avatar (follow) Cameras
  • First Person Cameras (untested)
All three 3rd person camera types can be customized to aim at any point relative to the avatar, and to have any Field of View you like.
Avatar cameras can be set to hang around at any point relative to the avatar, allowing you total fexibility

Also, these cameras are linked to camera regions, to allow a multitude of different camera's in your age, to make the explorer view it just the way you designed it!

Finally, you can make any camera you want the default camera for the age. Though we recommend using this feature primarily with avatar camera's.
