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"

They are reflection capture actors. They capture the environment within their bounds and the materials use those for reflections. For interiors you usually need box reflection captures for each room and spherical captures for more detailed, localized reflections.

For future reference, you can select any Actor in the Viewport and view it in the World Outliner. This will display the Actor Name (Label) and its Type. Then you can use the documentation to research it further.

Hope that helps!
