How to install

  1. Add this plugin to your bevy application
app .add_plugins( MagicFxPlugin )
  1. Load and register your shader variants from files

 		let shadvar_name = & shader_variant_manifest.name;

                    let shader_material_handle = animated_materials.add( build_animated_material(
                        shader_variant_manifest, // the ron file parsed 
                        &texture_handles_map
                        ).unwrap()
                    ); 
                    
                    asset_loading_resource.animated_material_map.insert( 
                        shadvar_name .clone(), 
                        shader_material_handle );
   
  1. Load and register your magic fx variants from files

 let magic_fx_variant_manifest: &MagicFxVariantManifest = fx_variant_assets
                        .get(&asset_handles_resource.magic_fx_variant_manifest_handle)
                        .unwrap();

                     let mesh_handles_map = &asset_loading_resource.mesh_handles_map;

                    let animated_materials_map = &asset_loading_resource.animated_material_map;
  
                    let magic_fx = MagicFxVariant::from_manifest(
                        magic_fx_variant_manifest, // the ron file parsed 
                      
                        &mesh_handles_map,
                      
                        &animated_materials_map,
                     
                        
                    ).unwrap();

			//save the variant for later spawning ..
 		asset_loading_resource.loaded_magic_fx_variants.insert( 
                        magic_fx.name.clone(), 
                        magic_fx );
      

  1. Spawn your magic fx variants whenever you want

             let _magic_fx_root = commands
                        .spawn(SpatialBundle::default())
                        .insert(MagicFxVariantComponent {
                            magic_fx,  //this is what you saved in a resource in step 3
                            start_time: time.elapsed(),
                        })
                        .id();

Billboarding

To use billboarding on meshes, you must insert a MagicFxBillboardTarget component to your camera.
