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 highlight an entire object (not just outline)?


I have created a material that outlines objects of interest in my game. I used a custom depth map and sobel operator to accomplish this. I did this by following this tutorial exactly


Now I want to enhance the effect by also blending a material over all the pixels contained within the outline. Would appreciate any advice on how to achieve this, whether it's similar to how I did the outline or it's an entirely different approach I may want to consider. Thanks!

Look at the Content Examples in the map "Blueprint Communication" - the second last example there also uses a PostProcess material like you do for an outline effect, but it also uses a "flashing" material which applies to the whole mesh.

You could also just blend (lerp) a solid color in your current PostProcess material.
