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"

Is procedural mesh component here to stay ?

I have been using procedural mesh component which has been added since UE 4.8. It is much more flexible and has better utility functions compare to custom mesh component. But it is tagged as an experimental feature which means that in future might get removed. I wanted to ask about the probability of it getting removed and additionally express how important is it if it stay ( e.g. when you wanna use Kinect in your program)

Product Version: UE 4.8

Well, I read the depth data, perform the coordination mapping ( coordination mapping is now a bottle neck but I am resolving the case now ) and afterward make a dynamic plane mesh from the depth data which changes when kinect depth data changes. Later I am painting the mesh according to my project. The issue is that I want to be sure it is not going to be removed in later releases (e.g. UE4.9)
