Strobe lights ground reflection

Recommended Posts

As you also enhanced some of the lights on the Lear, is it planned to add ground reflections for the nav, but even more important, the strobe lights? On the Lear with its short wing directly behind the cockpit this effect should be really prominent I guess, and I can well imagine an effect where raindrops are shortly illuminated with every flash.

Hi Matthias,

 

There is no plan for ground reflections or nav/strobe lights at the moment.

Due to the way the aircraft is designed, we currently have no way to efficiently sync our effects to the aircraft's effects. This is why those effects weren't part of the package in the first place.

 

Regards,

Keven

Sorry for the late reply.. maybe I can convince mark for another update on the Lear once the Falcon is out of the hangar. What would be need in order to make volumetric nav/ strobe effects possible? I saw them in your 737 videos for example and they look amazing; the Lear would profit from such effects as well!

Volumetric Strobes requires a programmed timer we can hook on to sync our effect to theirs. This can be done through local variables or by having the specific timing code.

 

Volumetric Nav lights can be done but aren't logical to have if the strobes don't work correctly.

Many thanks, I will take this info to Mark and see if he might considers it for a future update. :)
