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"

Subsurface profile override not working (material instances)

I noticed subsurface profiles only work when assigned in the material editor and do not work when assigned in the material instance editor.

Reproduced by creating a material and an instance of it, create 2 subsurface profiles and assign a different one to the material and its instance. You can now change the profile assigned to the material and it will also change the instanced material even though it has a different profile assigned to it.

HI Roel -

I am not seeing the same behavior that you are describing above. Can you make sure that you have selected the Override Subsurface Profile marked as True in the Material Instance in addition to assigning a new Subsurface Profile.

I have attached a project with exaggerated Profiles as a test map.

Thank You

Eric Ketchum
