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"

Is there a way to create an Object Outline with a material?

Hey guys, I've been playing with materials and have hit kind of a stopping point.

So, I'm making interact-able NPC objects, and right now, when you hover the mouse over objects that can be interacted with, I have it set-up to switch to the color of the emissive color: alt text

I like this and it is awesome, but I have decided to only use this method on non-humanoid objects. And for the humanoid objects, I would like to gain an outline, very much like when you have it selected in editor: alt text

Is there a way to do this in the material editor?

I don't have Unreal in front of me right now or I would just show a screenshot of my blueprint setup. But I learned how to make an outline around an item when looking at it from this tutorial dvd: http://www.hourences.com/product/the-solus-project-blueprint-introduction/

Part 5 has a section on highlighting items.

Watched the video. And it does have the shader info for highlighting and I got it work. I don't understand it though, but it works. Wish there was more of an explanation. Thanks for the answer!
