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 package my project so I can modify it on another computer?

I have tried packaging my project, zipping it up as well as copying over the whole project to a new computer. But all my colours and objects do not show correctly either method. How can I package so I can open it on another computer and work on it there too? I've also exported for mac specifically and still doesn't work. I have no option to export for pc, i am working on a mac. thanks

Product Version: UE 4.12

  • Are you attempting to move the project from one Mac to another, or from a Mac to a PC?

You should be able to just zip up the project folder and extract it to another computer.

Mac and PC use different shader models. One is SM 4 and one is SM 5, so there are expected differences in your materials, which could explain why you are seeing issues with your colors.

Could you provide screenshots of the issues you're experiencing when opening your project on another PC?
