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"

Volume rendering in UE4


I try to find some ways for implementing in UE4 Volume rendering like this:

Volume rendering of skull

It means that 3d array of intensities should be displayed in way when each part of volume is visible (not like isosurface when visible only external voxels)

Did somebody know how to do it? Or why it is complicated in UE4?


Product Version: UE 4.9

UE4 is designed around geometric rendering so you would have to write every aspect of the volume rendering. This makes it very difficult. The best option is to create cutting planes that blends together.

If you want to do volume rendering in UE4 I wish you the best of luck,
