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"

I'd use a grayscale texture in a material. If you are short on texture memory then it's a simple enough shape to make procedurally. (Let me know if you want an node graph for that.)

You can use that material in a MaterialBillboard component. If you want to add some basic animation then you can use it in a particle system: a particle can fade in and out, move up and down, things like that. With UMG you can make the frame part of the UI.

Yes, I`d like to look at your material, please. Now I am making this frames using HUD class. I draw them in photoshop and all simple animations and positioning I am doing in HUD.

If you are happy with the frames you made in PS then you are pretty much set:

If you want to change the look of the frame on the fly then you might use something like the following node graph to draw it:

Thank you for the material. I`ll try to experiment with it.
