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"

Speedtree leaf cards solid black mesh in UE4,


Please help, I have made many speedtree models for UE4 and some do not work correctly. All of the geometry is fine and wind effects. The issue is that the leave cards do not import the leaf materials, they stay as the flat black mesh. I have tried adjusting the lightmap scale. Is it something I need to do in UE4 or Speedtree?

Another issue on the trees that do work is that they lose resolution from a very close distance. How can I change the resolution distance? They look amazing in the Speedtree modeler but have very terrible resolution in UE4.

Product Version: UE 4.12
