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"

Is there a way to add more Textures to a UMaterialFactory?

I'm trying to expand the "Create New Material using this Texture" function in the editor. Instead of creating many materials it should create a single one containing all of the selected textures. It's already implemented using a single file:

UMaterialFactoryNew* Factory = NewObject();

Factory->InitialTexture = Object;

FContentBrowserModule& ContentBrowserModule = FModuleManager::LoadModuleChecked("ContentBrowser");

ContentBrowserModule.Get().CreateNewAsset(Name, FPackageName::GetLongPackagePath(PackagePath), UMaterial::StaticClass(), Factory);

The InitialTexture is always linked to the Base Color Input of the Main Material Node. I couldn't solve it yet but there has to be a way to add more texture files and link them to different inputs like metallic for example. I've already read several similar posts but I'm still lost. Thanks in advance!
