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"

Can I generate my own costum vector field?

Hello everybody I'm new to UE4, and I just begun to study particles systems. As a physics student, I got excited about the vector fields option in GPU particle systems, but I haven't seen any option of creating my own inside of the unreal editor nor anything that allowes me to create my own vector field using mathematical functions. Is there any other option other than maya for creating vector fields? maybe using C++ or somthing? Thanks a lot, Idan

Product Version: UE 4.12

Houdini, 3dsmax (needs a free plugin), blender (also free plugin: https://forums.unrealengine.com/showthread.php?63147-TOOL-Blender-Vector-Field-Editor ) are probably your safest bets.

Doing it in c++ would be extremely tedious, and utter respect for any coder who can and does.
