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 to glitch render with customizeable depth sorting?

Hi, newbie here. And as a newbie, I retain the right to ask an obnoxious and overly ambitious question on how to achieve an effect that no one is interested in achieving ;)

In brief, I'm trying to 'glitch' render a house so that it's turned inside out. More specifically, I would like to set up the camera with a view of the house's exterior, but only render interior faces/objects that normally would be occluded behind the exterior walls. And to complicate things more, is there a way so that what gets rendered is based on pixel depth sorting?

After pouring through various threads and posted questions, I think my question posed in more technical terms would be:

Is there a way to customize depth sorting so that based on an object's hierarchical Z depth at each pixel location, I can choose which order of pixel depth to render? For example, I only want to render the second closest pixel depth relative to the camera. In my conception, this is how the image will become glitchy as you change perspectives.

I hope this is clear.

Theoretically, can this be done in blueprint visual scripting, at the coding level, or would require accessing the gpu?
