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"

How to hide outline post process effect behind objects

I created an outline effect following the instructions in this tutorial:

outline tutorial

I had to create the M_highlight material because I couldn't find it in the content examples. I think it is no longer available there. Maybe I messed that up. But I can't find any problem with it.

Anyway, most of the material works fine, I am perfectly happy with the outline. Only thing is, that it is drawn on top of the whole scene. So if I place an object in front of the object with the outline and do not activate its "custom depth pass" the outline of the other object is rendered on top of this. Like in this screenshot:

Here is the material I recreated from the video:


Any idea what i did wrong??? Every help would be much appreciated.

Is there another way to do this, if it is not possible to achieve the desired result using the M_highlight material and post-processing?
