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"

Why does the viewport display this effect differently than the particle editor?


On the left is the viewport, on the right the particle editor. Both are being viewed in lit mode. The only way I can make the scene viewport look like the particle editor is by setting the viewport mode to unlit. Is this intended?

Figured out what the difference was - unchecking the Separate Translucency under Show -> Advanced in the viewport settings made the viewport look exactly like the particle editor.

Not sure why, but question answered at least.

Whatever you change in the viewport wont affect the packaged project so you should enable/disable separate translucency in the material of that particle effect.

It's strange, I tried just disabling that in the material (and applied), but it didn't fix the issue. Do I need to rebuild anything?

Edit: Ah nevermind, I was editing the wrong material. Works now!
