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 add a wireframe look to assets...

How can I add a wireframe look to assets when I look at them. I have a room right now. When I look around, let's say at a chair, I'm wanting to add a tron like wireframe to it. Then have it go away when I look elsewhere. I just have no idea where to start. Any help with a starting point? Thank you.

So, you would need to change the material, when you look at it.

  • Use A Line Trace

  • When Trace hits objects

  • Set material to "tron material"

  • When trace leaves objects

  • Set material back to normal material

Use tick with delta seconds. You could also try out dot product. Check out Math_Lab in Content Examples. That could probably be the easiest way for you, depends on exactly what you need. Check them both out and see which you like.

Thank you. I have the material made. It's the BP to have it turn on/off when I look at my props that I don't understand.
