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 make a shining material like turned-on TV screen?

Hi there, I have just create a slate and put DMI on it, which will act like a TV screen with movie played on it. But I have a concern that how can this emissive screen be like a real world TV to make the environmental lighting changed depending on it (e.g. when something red is played on screen, the environment changed to red a bit).

I'm really a newbie to those texture or material things so below is all I can do by myself... alt text

It looks emissive but is actually not illuminating other objects. Anyone can help me out?

For dynamic lighting based on your video, check out this plugin: https://www.unrealengine.com/marketplace/video-ambient-lighting

The solution suggested in the answer above only works for casting static lighting into the room, the plugin does it dynamically so the lighting of the room matches your video at all times and also supports stationary lights with baked shadows or movable lights with fully dynamic shadows.
