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"

Opening .bin shaders with UE4

I was searching the installation directory of a popular game that has some really good shaders. This game was created with UE3. I found a shader directory with all the files inside having .bin extension. Is there a way to open these .bin shader files with UE4, so i can see how some of these shaders work and how are they composed?

Product Version: UE 4.9

What you found is probably a dump of compiled shaders. There is no way to covert those back to the original network of nodes. Besides, the material and shading system is very very different in UE4.
