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"

How to have a newton's ring reflection on a Material

How to emulate a newton's ring reflection on a Material? I can do this effect on Marmoset Toolbag 2, and it looks amazing, how can I do it on UE4? Is is possible? What is the performance cost?

One thought would be to simulate this by placing a spotlight in your lens to simulate the light coming from it, and then using a custom IES profile to generate the ring effect.

This would likely only work for the monochrome rings unless you're willing to try three lights (R,G,B, each with its own custom IES curve) but would at least nicely light everything below your lens and shouldn't have too great an impact on performance.

The IES format docs are at http://docs.autodesk.com/ACD/2010/ENU/AutoCAD%202010%20User%20Documentation/index.html?url=WS73099cc142f48755f058a10f71c104f3-3b1a.htm,topicNumber=d0e177687 , but I've never had to author one so I can't really be of help with how to do that.

Thanks for your answer, but I was expecting to have a easy newton's ring shader similar to the Marmoset Toolbag 2, perhaps in the UE 4.8?
