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 learn advanced material creation?

Hey guys!

For a while now I've seen many, many amazing materials and shaders people create using UE4 (specially when it comes to water), but when I open them and try to reverse engineer, my brain stops working because of its complexity.

I always feel overwhelmed when trying to learn those, and I've been wondering here, for those who know a lot a bout material creation, how did you learn it? How did you learn how to use fresnel, world position offset, material functions and all that? I really want to learn it, but I find it very hard on my own. :/

Thanks! Marco B.

Product Version: UE 4.9
