Hexagonal grid formation

Hi community!
Just an example of how to put objects in formation of hexagonal grid:

Something heavier:

Also tried InstancedMesh with DoF (bumped into that cool example from @DolphinIQ: Bokeh & Unreal Bloom Website header or something ). Seems they work well together with no need of patching shaders of Bokeh :slight_smile:

That’s great!
Do you have a striped down version of JUST the compositing effects with nothing but say…a cube in the scene to share possibly?

@GlifTek do you need an example with postprocessing effects?

I see the ones in the docs, I love this combo going on with the hex tho

@GlifTek
If you’re interested, there is a topic that mentions about kind of “evolution” of my thoughts on using of selective bloom: Robeast (selective bloom)
Search “Resources” and “Showcase” with “bloom” and you’ll find interesting examples. :slight_smile:

Cool! Thanks!

But also, if I just wanted to experiment with bokeh, DOF, …ALSO “chromatic aberration RGB splitting” (there’s another simpler name for it I wish I remembered) … Used with a vignette mask, so it’s adjustable to be only in the corners if desired…
I’m trying to get those …aaand selective bloom stacked in a template file that lacks ANY other things going on, so that I can just snap it onto any scene and get creative with them.

Do you have any projects like that? Or you or anyone else here know of any?
Would really appreciate it,
(Tried creating them with SVG filters as an overlay to 3d once…super frustrating waste of time!)
thanks!

There’s an approach from @looeee: Selective UnrealBloomPass issues
