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"

3D Widget - Allow to be effected by lighting

Is there a way to make the UWidgetComponent use lit materials? This is the opposite of most people not wanting the component to be affected by lighting. I've tried deriving a new class from UWidgetComponent and setting the translucent material but it doesn't seem to have any effect.

Product Version: UE 4.12

There is no way as i know, Slate has it own rendering stage and data from scene rendering is inaccessable at that point. You could place mesh on from of player camera, problem is you need to make sure it won't collide with wall.

Been stuck in this for some hours but i found out now.. for anyone out there... 1. Enter the material of the 3Dwidget (The main material) 2. Change it to Default lit and Opaque 3. Remove the emissive node and put the salte as the base color.

I couldnt do it by tweaking the auto exposure

Did it in 4.15
