So I want certain objects in my game to have the glow effect, so I tried putting these objects into a new layer with the glow effect on it. The problem is that these objects look as though they are far in the background, when I want them to remain where they normally are. Is there a way to add effects to an object without effecting other parts of how it is rendered?
No, effects happen on layers, not objects.
If you have a layer specifically for effects, you’re going to need to update that layer’s camera the exact same way you do your main layer, meaning any zoom/move/rotation of the base layer’s camera needs to be applied to your effect layers as well, otherwise the positions won’t match up.
Thank you, that worked great : )
