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 it possible to make a static mesh fade out entirely in BP?

I was wondering if there is an easy way to make a static mesh actor fade out without the use of materials.

Not a 100% but I don't think you can. There is not an RGBA setting for a static mesh and you would need an alpha channel in order to do a fade effect. Why are you opposed to doing this with materials? I assume you will have some sort of material on your mesh so just make the base color a parameter then do a dynamic material cast and with a timeline, have it lower the alpha of the dynamic material over the length of the timeline.
