Hi,

I am adding flares to a light bar that I recently modeled, and I am having the following issue. (I am using flares2)

The flare changes size when the camera is moved, and when you are looking at the front of the car, it disappears completely.

[1/20/20, fixed]

The flares2 line:
117, 116, 119, 0.2, 1.75, 4, u, 1, 0, 1.0, tracks/B

Thank you for the help!

That's how all flares work. 🤔
From the wiki
Code:
Flare size: Real number; This determines how big the flare will be. Reasonable values are between 0.1 and 5 (0.1 = 10% of default size). If the size is smaller then 0, then the flare will be independent of the camera angle. (So the flare does not get smaller when you move the camera)
So you want your flare size to be a negative number if you don't want it to change from camera movement.
