16.01 - how to use new "Line Rendering" empty feature

31 January 2016 06:53

I have looked at the .blend file for the new line rendering feature using an empty in 16.01, but I am not sure how to use it in an animation.

Is it possible to set thickness, color and alpha for lines using the Blender GUI, or is programming also necessary?

I would like to use this to draw planet orbits. A tutorial or more detailed description would be appreciated.

This feature requires programming to create a line and set its width/color/alpha params. See sources of the "Lines" code snippet to learn more.
