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"

Possible to apply texture to one side

So I am using a lot of video textures in my application and putting them onto cubes. Since the video texture gets applied to all sides of the cube, there is considerable slowdown when multiple textured cubes are in a level. Is there any way so that I can apply the video texture to only one side of the cube through either UVs, blueprints, or other settings?

Edit - Some more information: I've basically created a object blueprint. In one of the fields, I can select a video or an image which then gets applied to the cube. I'm trying to see if I can get to only be set to one side of the cube, rather than having each side have the video or image.

Product Version: UE 4.9

we need to be able to apply textures to one side of the cube via GUI, also, we should be able to via GUI select if the texture will be tiled, stretched, centered, etc.. this is not available on UE4... yet. it is kinda "hard" since it requires BSP so you need to build up intermediatte experience on BSP.

Create a BSP cube and use the BSP tools to set one side to a material not like the others, then convert it to static mesh. Should be able to manage that one sides material by it self now

This does help, however it is not exactly what I'm looking for, though I should've been more specific in my question.

I've basically created a object blueprint and in one of the fields, I can select a video or an image which then gets applied to the cube. I'm trying to see if I can get to only be set to one side of the cube.

The "stock" cube is just a cube static mesh, which 1 material applied over it. You either can do what I described to generate your own static mesh with 2 materials on it or you need to have someone make you one in a 3d editing program. (I know it seems silly...)

Evan the Hammer Editor of Source Engine is able to do that! LoL UE4 ....and also the in the Hammer Editor you can simple resize boxes with your cursor like an image and save a lot of time, in UE4 you need to go with your cursor in the scale field and time the dimension what the box should have....there is so much time lost with this step....UE4 Can implement a lot of cool features from the old Hammer Editor.

your answer doesnt answer the question at all. the hammer engine is not the unreal engine so posting on several threads about it doesnt help anyone. also as stated by others over two years ago it is possible to accomplish in ue4 using BSPs.
