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"

Adding support for Amira Mesh Flow data (vector field)


I would like to extend the Factories/VectorFieldFactory.cpp to support amira mesh files. I would like to see if I can use the Unreal Engine for my flow visualization research.

What is the best course of action for this (I have a working amira mesh file parser written in another c++ project and would just port it over). Would I need to write a new factory or add to the existing one? Could I do this in a plugin or would I need to add this to the engine source code?

Just trying to wrap my head around the best way to add this functionality before I dive in.

Cheers, John
