Is it possible to use my own mesh with vertical billboard?

I am recreating Annie’s E, but I got some problem with her “fire wings”.



I tried to create the fire wing with curved 2d mesh:

But I if set render alignment to view, the top view will look bad. If I set the render alignment to local, then the mesh will be invisible at 90 degree cause it’s 2d.

I think I need something like vertical billboard, but if I use vertical billboard, it seems that I can’t use my own mesh anymore.

How to achieve this Fire wing effect? Help!


Hi, maybe I am wrong, but it looks like a texture panning on one UV axe on a sphere :thinking:
If you want to use your mesh with view alignment, you should try to place the pivot in the center of the arc

You can use this

Or try this
