I’ve filed bug reports for this on Answerhub but they’ve previously sunk to the bottom without any feedback. I’m not sure how often people use these things, but there are two big issues with Material Billboards right now that makes them difficult to use. Would be great to see these issues gain attention in 4.8
- The UV coordinates are flipped/inverted, and rotated 90 degress. Ideally, we just want simple plane-based UV Coordinates.
- They don’t support Dynamic Material Instances. There doesn’t seem to be a way to make a Material Billboard ‘take’ to a dynamic material instance, and be able to modify the materials’ properties. I have an answerhub bug on this here
