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"

Can we make a line trace pass through masked portions of a material?

I want to set clickable zones on the screen from an alpha texture. White would be clickable (block the trace) and black would let the trace through (in this case for the "hit result under cursor") to get blocked by other objects for other purposes.

I tried in a widget but since the image takes all the screen it is always considered hovered.

I tried with a plane in front of the camera with the alpha texture using screen-aligned UVs but the mask is not taken into account so the cube is completely blocking the trace.

I mostly want to know if it's even possible!
