how to make text face a certain way?


I’m using to label some blobs, I can make the text appear next to the blobs but when I use to give them a spin the text spins too and I can’t read it. I want the text to always remain next to the blob but always face the camera and remain horizontal. The’s are a all hidden in an mxj which is basically wrapping around

Any ideas?

I think this might be what you’re looking for.

Also, Wesley posted a billboarding shader a few months ago that I can’t seem to find on the forums at the moment. I’ve attached the shader and patch though.

Cheers Zachary this looks pretty useful.
