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"

Outline for glass material

I'm trying to draw an outline on a glass material object, the material I'm using is the same in the startercontent


unfortunately I couldn't find a shader working properly (I tried with edge detection + postprocessing depth passes - link here) and I'm wondering how does the unreal editor do its nice outline since it also works with the glass material

alt text

Can anyone shed some light on this?

hi pwalker. the blendables have changed a bit. for these types of effects now you need to use the custom stencil pass. more infos here : https://forums.unrealengine.com/showthread.php?109605-outline-material-with-occlusion-around-actor and to get it working, don t forget to enable the function in the project settings/ render . hope it helps.
