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 blend the object material with landscape material?

Hi guys, I'm I want to blend the mesh material with my landscape material (screenshot 1, the two piles of snow are the objects, and they are placed on a landscape), such as how it looks in screenshot 2: the snow on the ground looks perfectly blended with the snow on the rock. But I'm not looking to get the exactly same looking, but for my example (screenshot 1), I'd like to find a method to blend the two object so there will be no seams appear when I place them on the landscape. Is there any way to do that?

Thank you! Sorry for my bad English.

Alex W

Thats very tricky. as they are two individual objects it cannot be done easily.

But the best place to start.... is making the landscape and the rocks both use the same or very close texture resolutions. and base them both on the same colour scheme, people can tell they are separate due the the resolution differences, and the colour differences.

There are other more complicated methods that would involve 1, Tesselation, or 2, Modifying the depth buffer into a custom material

Thank you MrGrr. So do you happen to have any ideas of how to do that in Tesselation or the depth buffer? Or do you know any tutorials that talks about this?
