Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Is it possible to export a material as a texture?

In the arch-viz industry, there is a constant back and forth between sketch -> model -> visualize -> revision. some of the materials we achieve in UE4 are unexpected. Is it possible to export these materials as 1024x1024 (or whatever size) textures for use back in sketchup or to send out as samples to various manufactures? I realize the result of the material is often world dependent, especially with lighting, cam distance, or scene reflections, but i was wondering if this could be achieved with an export tool from the material editor rather than screenshot crop.
