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"

Panner Control?


I'm wondering: is there a way to control more of a panner than just velocity?

Basically what I want to do is make a panner that starts, loops the (seamless) texture for one loop (back to it's starting point), then pauses for several seconds. For reference, here's what I'm trying to reproduce--but in GTAV. I'm fairly certain it's a normal map based on my own shader work, I just need to know how to create the interval that it should be actively scrolling.

heres what you can do alt text

in another blueprint in your game, you will create a dynamic material instance of this material, then you can get specific parameters from it. (in this case, the variable is the myVar1 scalar parameter.) if this variable is >= 1, it will pan the texture, if it is < 1, the panner wont do anything. In that blueprint where you are setting myVar1, you can use delays to control how long the panner pans for.

So I tried this, and I've got it panning. Now I'm just researching how to set up a blueprint for this. Thanks for setting me on the right path :)
