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"

Hi Hevedy -

Since Particle systems are meant to be an event over time, the thumbnail editing system used in the Content Browser which can capture Actors in 3D space and allow you to rotate around actor, does not function with Particle System. In other words, the system has no reference for time on which to call a particle system. This is by design and to keep editor performance high.

You can always open the particle system in Cascade and at the moment in the effect you want to take a snapshot you can click the Thumbnail button and on save and close the Thumbnail in the Content Browser will update the static image generated.

Thank You

Eric Ketchum
