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"

Writing shaders for UE4

Writing your own shaders and compute shaders in UE4 appears to be hidden from the public eye like a dark, ancient secret. This is something that's been keeping me away from UE4 ever since it came out. But since it's been a long time since I last asked, here I am again;

Does anyone have a comprehensible and straightforward guide, preferably with examples, on how to write your own shaders and compute shaders in UE4?

Just to clarify, I'm not talking about the shading language or the theory behind how to write shaders. For now I'm just interested in where to start if I want to use different shaders than the standard PBS
