Geo Text Sprite

please is there some recommended way of making texts within Geo Text COMP behave like sprites - so that they are always oriented towards the camera? Thanks.

easiest way is probably using the Look at parameter of the Geo Text COMP.

Example attached with a bunch of instances of Geo Text and a rotating camera

Thanks @nettoyeur, this works nicely, however it breaks when camera goes “upside down” :confused:

Oh, now I remembered I have seen this problem solved before - in Geo Text snippets (called “better text beside 3D geo points”). Nice solution there
