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"

Particle Material Offset

So I'm working on a particle that is a texture whose alpha is multiplied into a copy of the texture whose alpha's panning upwards. My issue is that when I plug it into Cascade, all sprites inherit the exact same movement speed, making it look really uniform and less random. Is there a way I can offset it or randomize it so each sprite is at a different phase of the panner?

You could do this using dynamic parameters. I'm not sure what your set up is, so I don't know exactly how they should interact, but if you use a Dynamic Parameter node in your material to add an offset, and then set that randomly with the Dynamic Parameter module in the particle emitter, you should be able to get the control that you need.
