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"

RGB channel selection shortcut for tex editor

When editing a texture in the texture editor I usually need to have a look at what the individual channel looks like in my image. It's really frustrating to have to un-click the R and G channels just to take a look at the B channel. I constantly find myself wishing there was some shortcut to switch between the channels easily. If there is such a shortcut please forgive me I have not found it!

Thank you for your time:)

Seems like this has been buried and forgotten, so I made a thread in the forums: https://forums.unrealengine.com/showthread.php?136184-RGB-Channel-Selection-Shortcut-for-Texture-Editor

Under Editor Preferences -> Keyboard Shortcuts -> Texture Editor you can bind you own keys to toggle the visibility of each channel of your texture. There are 4 specific commands you want to bind:

  1. Alpha

  2. Blue

  3. Green

  4. Red

I'm currently using CTRL+1 = Red; CTRL+2 = Green, CTRL+3 = Blue, and CTRL+4 = Alpha

Thanks! Didn't know about that! It's one step closer to what I want, but I wish it isolated the channel I'm toggling and not just turn it off. More like the bahavior is in applications like Nuke.
