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"

Where did the Actor Merging tool go?

In the youtube channel of Unreal you've once posted a video about "Creating Interactions in VR with Motion Controllers". Towards the end of the video Sam Deiter introduces a new experimental tool called "Actor Merging", which allows you to merge several static meshes into one single mesh and lets the engine also create a material/texture atlas for you. Which is quite nice.

Now the big question: Where did the actor merging tool go? And if it's gone, is there another one doing the exact same job integrated in the engine? Any suggestions?

Was it replaced with the implementation of Simplygon?

Many thanks in advance for any help.

Cheers
