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"

Will UE4 get integrated DX11 Compute Shaders like in Unity ?

Hi there,

I've been using Unity for a few months and I am now willing to do the switch to UE4 for various personal reasons...

However, Unity has a very nice feature which is Compute Shaders, via the use of internal classes it is super simple to develop compute shaders. It integrates nicely with the framework and also get to be compiled automatically like any other shader.

I know that it is possible to use my own GPGPU layer via C++, however I would prefer it to be part of the framework because I am a lazy ass coder.

Is there any plans in adding this feature in a near future, Epic ?

Regards, Mat.

This already exists. Have a look at my fluid surface plugin here: https://github.com/Ehamloptiran/UnrealEngine/releases I have integrated a compute shader in there. The class u will be looking for is FFluidSurfaceCS which extends from FGlobalShader.
