The latest release of the Bonus Content is now available, and we’re happy to bring you a flashlight prop that be used as a set object or an interactive held prop by characters in your movies.
We had originally thought that the flashlight beam was going to present us with some coding issues as the beam has only previously been used on the Follow Spot (in the Music Video pack) and we weren’t sure whether it would function as a held prop. Luckily, there were no problems getting the effects working with the new geometry, meaning that the flashlight can project light and have a neat little lens “glow” effect from the bulb and reflector.
At the moment, there’s look left, look right and look up animations (with the option of returning the flashlight to the carrying position once you’ve done), and we’ve also added two levels of brightness so that you can choose the intensity of the beam depending on your scene’s lighting.
We hope you enjoy this free asset, keep checking the forums and blogs for future updates!
