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"

Particle max draw distance

Hey guys!

In udk was a render distance option in the particle object settings so i made them dissapear on X range. How can i do this in UE4 in a simple way? I tried current max draw distance at the particle options, tried to turn it off with LOD (if i get back close, particle wont show up anymore).

I have smoke in a corridor and too much particle gives red shader complexity so i want to "hide" them on 1500~ range.

Hey Ashkandi -

Culling as you are describing is correctly done via the LOD setup in the Particle System. You may need to adjust the LOD Distance Check Time to a smaller fraction if you are moving very quickly into and out of the LOD Distance.

Could you post screenshots of your LOD Method Information from Cascade as well as the screenshots of the particle system transition in the editor into and out of the LOD distance.

Thank You

Eric Ketchum

Also you can set up bounds in the particle properties or cull it by distance in the material (Even though i'm pretty sure the last one is kind of making texture disappear rather than actually culling).
