Laser Blast effect in Grease Pencil


Paul Caggegi writes:

Hi Blendernation!

In this tutorial, I show how to set up a grease pencil asset that integrates with 3D objects in a toon-style scene. I take the viewer through the process of setting up lighting, using a simple glow effect on the grease pencil asset, constrain the asset to face the camera (for moving shots) and finally, enable collections for separate view layers to composite for best effect. The working file is available here.
