I am using 3D map view in QGIS 3.4 and I have point data. On layer properties I have enabled 3D Renderer but the billboard rendering to point option does not seem to be there.

Does anyone know where I can find this?

  • Billboard rendering in 3D view worked fine in 3.10 but now in 3.12 does not work?

It was not backported to 3.4.x LTR branch, but does currently exist in 3.10.x branch.

See the comment here by its developer:

Result: Rendering point 3D as a billboard support is added to QGIS 3.10

As well as the commit for it on the QGIS Github:

Note that there was no milestone, nor backport specified. This went into master over the summer and made it into 3.10 thereafter. According to the QGIS Roadmap, when 3.10 becomes LTR this February you will have the feature if you can't switch to stable now.
