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"

LERP Ctrl+Alt documentation incorrect

I've verified that with the Materieal LERP function, an Alpha of 0.0 selects the A input, and 1.0 selects the B input. The documentation that comes up when doing a Ctrl+Alt over Lerp states:

If Alpha is 1.0/white, the first input is used. If Alpha is 0.0/black. the second input is used.

This is backwards. The web documentation https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/Rendering/Materials/ExpressionReference/Math/index.html?utm_source=editor&utm_medium=docs&utm_campaign=rightclick_matnode#linearinterpolate is correct though. It's online the in-editor documentation that's wrong.

I've recreated the same project, minus the normal.

I did some experimenting with the clamp and this is what I have come up with. A calls 0.0 and B calls 1.0. However, within the clamp if you leave the minimum zero and set the max to one you are telling the material you have this array of numbers between 0 and 1. You can be any one of those numbers.

While setting only max to 1.0 I got some interesting material coordinates that returned mostly one but with the other two textures being tiled around the edge.

In order for this system you either set both numbers to 1.0 or both numbers to 0.0 to tell the material you can only call this texture at this numerical value.

However, even if this is what you were doing. The values for A are 0.0 and the values for B are 1.0.
