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"

Randomize textures?

So I've been wondering why it is the materials in the sample props are so seamless, and look like they have some sort of a random flow to them? Thanks

Hello Edkenway,

I am trying to better understand why you are trying to ask? If you go into the actual materials of the sample props they are quite complex and use a good bit of different texture samples and "tricks" to get not only variation, but to also eliminate the seams as well. A good place to start understanding how materials are made in the editor, is to either attempt to reverse engineer one of the simpler materials, or to check out the documentation on materials found here:

https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/Rendering/Materials/index.html

I hope this helps to getting you on your way to understanding more! Materials can be real fun once you start to get how they function!

Thank you,

Andrew Hurley
