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"

What is Flipbooking?

Ok, so as I've gone along through the various sections of stuff to learn in UE4, I have come across the term flipbook/flipbooking in regards to particle systems and occasionally explosions, etc. I have yet to come across an adequate explanation of what they/it actually are/is. Can anyone explain what it is, why you use it, how you make it, and/or how you use it?

Flipbook or Flipbooking is a texture that has many frames put all in one texture. If it is imported as a flipbook, you will have the option of setting how many frames per second the texture will be "flipped" through. You can also set how many frames the texture contains length and height wise. This will initially play an animation when viewed in a particle system or material.

This might give you some brief insight on how they are made.

They usually follow the power of 2 rule 128/256/ etc per frame.
