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"

Texture Gamma problem on Metal/ES3

I'm packing my roughness map into the Alpha channel of my color map. As suggested here.. https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Platforms/Mobile/Textures/index.html

However, my textures are either too bright or too dark depending on whether sRGB is checked. The only way I'm able to get them too look correct is if I enable sRGB, compile the material with the Texture Sampler types as "Color". Then untick sRGB on the textures. Which is obviously not the right way to go about things.

I've seen people mention that the PNG should be 8-bit, but changing to that in photoshop limits to 256 colors? I've also tried using TGA but the alpha channel affects the colors for some reason?

What is the correct method of packing roughness in the color alpha channel and retaining the correct gamma across multiple platforms (SM4/5, ES2, ES3/Metal).
