Blaster – the Blender 3D add-on for quickly and easily creating blaster and magic beams.
To create a blaster beam with default settings, just add a curve to the scene:
shift + a – Curve
set the desired shape, and click the “Blast Along Curve” button in the addon panel.
The blaster beam can be static or you can assign a default animation to it by checking the “Add Default Animation” checkbox and setting the animation start and end frames.
The basic parameters of the created ray can be quickly adjusted in the add-on panel.
The last ray can be recreated, if necessary, by checking the “Recreate Last” checkbox.
With the “Blaster” add-on you can create:
Simple visual effects
Blaster beams for Sci-Fi Weapons
Magic rays for fantasy scenes
