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"

Custom Material - Shadows Only

I want to create a material that has transparency and by default is completely transparent.

However, I want shadows to appear on the material which have transparency based on their intensity (so a full black shadow would have 0% transparency and a mild shadow might have 50% transparency).

The effect I am after is what shadows would look like if being cast on to invisible objects.

Is there a shadow colour/intensity variable i can use in a pixel shader? I'm new to ue4 shaders.
