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"

Particles not rendering correctly

Hey there!

I've started setting up my own particle systems with materials, for games/archviz. However when I've started making the rain particles, I've encountered a few problems. First of all, everything was working correctly with a snow particle system, and I am mostly using the same setup. My problem is actually the rendering of the particles. No matter how many particles I set, it just looks empty and dull. For example, in the picture you can see 60K! particles rendering in a 100x50 location. I do not know what can cause this problem. Everything is set to epic, I've tried starting it as a standalone game, or just in the editor, nothing seems to work. Also the particles are not even showing up properly (not even close to what you see in the picture), even tough I use GPU particles, and the boundings are set perfectly. Again, this is not happening with the snow particles, only the rain, and I do use mostly the same setup. Any ideas?


It's only by the windows on x,y - 100,50 location :)

Do you have 'Responsive AA' enabled on the material for the rain particles?

I didn't have. To be honest I didn't even know there's such a function :D Anyway, it made it a lot better. Thank you for the suggestion :)
