How do I reflect Saber off of objects from Element

Postby Pilk on 01/9/2018, 2:51 pm

I have several layers from Element and want to use the Saber controlled by aux channels from Element. Everything is working close to what I want, but I would like to have the flicker from the Saber being reflected on the Element objects. Is this a easy task?

You'd most likely have to use it as a custom texture on an object

Thanks for the reply. I was just thinking that may be a option, but wanted to see if there may be an easier step I was missing.

I've approached a similar problem by using Saber as a texture but also adding a subtle, flickering light to the scene, the same colour as the Saber texture.
