UMG - Gradients on Text Blocks
Hi, I'm trying to create a gradient text effect for the ranks in my game over screen.
This is the kind of effect I would like to be able to achieve on the text. I've also added in some colour swatches of the gradient to make it easier to replicate.
I would prefer to use the text renderer within UE4 to get sharper looking fonts as opposed to exporting what I have out as an image. Is it possible to create these kinds of effects because so far I can't find any information relating to applying a gradient to a text block element which is a shame as UMG has been pretty awesome to use so far.

Hey CaptainMcMarcus -
I answered a question similar to this on how to make a Font Material which can be used in the Text Render Actor which should be able to achieve something similar to what you are looking to achieve.
Let me know if I can clarify -

Hi, you should be able to do it with this kit on the unreal marketplace: It should solve what you would like to do, I noticed there's also a playable demo!
