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"

Apply material texture variations on diferents objects

Hello! I'm trying to apply texture variations of the same material to multiple objects. The idea is that each object have the same material but with a variation of texture, dirty different windows for example, but not do it manually. I don't know if he had to do it from the material or a blueprint ... How would anyone know?

Thank you! :)

There are a number of different ways to do this. My personal preference would be to convert either the texture or co-ordinates to a parameter and then edit them via a Blueprint:

Hello xyth,

Alternatively to this method is using Material Instances. This way you can also preview in realtime what your material will look like.

Logan... I already said that in the original answer, haha. It's in the first link ;)

Sure.... That is the first part to set up the Material Instance. This is just further documentation unless more information is needed on the Instance itself.

Of course; Logan has a decent point though: If you use Params; Be sure to make an instance so you can actually use them. Haha.
