Overlay: 'Show Cone' for Spotlights not working anymore
Closed, ResolvedPublicBUG


System Information
Operating system: Linux-5.3.12-200.fc30.x86_64-x86_64-with-fedora-30-Thirty 64 Bits

Blender Version
Broken: version: 2.82 (sub 6), branch: master, commit date: 2019-12-19 09:05, hash: rB076cedc777bd
Worked: rB9516921c05b^

Short description of error
The Show Cone option for a spotlight is not drawing anymore, this is in addition to T72871.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  • Open file, observe this issue:
  • the cone itself [transparent cone overlay] is not drawn at all

So this degraded in multiple steps:

  • 2.81a still good

(- rB9516921c05b would still draw the cone (but much smaller/shorter than before))

Marking as High prio (since it is a regression...)

Please make a report per issue. I am not sure if (1) is actually a bug, or that this is part of the new implementation that needs to be fine tuned.

Is related to how sub groups are created in overlay_extra. master is failing when the overlay extra's isn't drawing lines. It seems to be failing for cones and stereoscopic cameras
