Playmaker action for "Volumetric Light Beam" ?
« on: May 29, 2020, 12:43:53 AM »
Hello!
Is there Playmaker action for "Volumetric Light Beam" from the Unity Asset Store?
https://assetstore.unity.com/packages/vfx/shaders/volumetric-light-beam-99888

Thank you very much.

Hi,
Some of it can be connected to the light component, so you could manipulate those.

what values do you need to change @runtime?

Many thanks for the quick response.

 I would like to adjust the values 'Range Limit' in the section "Fall-Off Attenuation" of the "Volumetirc light Beam (Script)".
I already got some success using the 'Set Property' option in Playmaker.
Also the Playmaker action for 'Light' switch it on and off. So I gues that the 'Set Property' can change every Variable?

Hi.
Yes 'Set Property' can be used for that, but always try to minimize using that action as it uses 'mirroring' and is slower that dedicated actions.

Also you might need to use Linker wizard to make it work in a build.

I see ...

So I will try to make a custom action for it. Got your Action from the Asset Store for 'Lean Pool' maybe I can change it for 'Light Beam'.

Thanks for your time.

Hi.
Thanks for purchasing the asset..

I actually have the asset and already looking to make some actions for it.
I will try to make a set by the end of the week.

But its good to try to make your own :)
That's how i learned C#
By looking to other actions.

Here is a good video about creating custom actions :


Also here is a good page to have a look at :

Oh that would be great! Thanks a lot!

I just started to learn c# but with Playmaker I am a lot faster to get things done. I will look to the Tutorial as well.
