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"

How can I get Interactive Smoke Particle systems?

Hi guys,

I'm in the beginning of a project that requires a lot of interactive smoke. I'm required to have smoke interact with a few static meshes and also fill up a few invisible containers. Is it possible to create a believable effect using GPU particles and Vector fields? Real-time performance isn't that important as i want to render out a video at the end.

Product Version: UE 4.10

I was looking at the nvidia flex demo on YouTube. I wonder if that kind of dense smoke is possible in unreal. I'll try out the ue4 build with gameworks interstated from GitHub. So far I've only seen people use flex in ue4 for fluid simulations.
