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"

Thanks an Best regards Flow

You could use vignette to some extent, but to have the best control I would use a custom blendable post-process material. You could use a circular gradient and turn the radius into a parameter, or you could implement your own eliptical gradient through math and use parameters to create the blink effect.

Probably the easiest though would be to use a linear gradient along with an offset parameter representing the top lid and just use the parameter to move this gradient down when blinking.

The technique that getnamo is referring to here is similar to the method employed by the crew over at GameDev.tv in their "Create VR Experiences with Unreal Engine and C++" course.

It's worth checking out on Udemy if you want to understand how this works. https://www.udemy.com/unrealvr/
