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"

4.12.5 Custom stencil always zero

I'm using custom depth and the stencil value seems to be always zero. The last time I used custom stencil was with 4.10 or 4.11 and it worked (didn't test it with the same object) but I'm not sure at which point it stopped working.

Should I use some other technique (which I can in my case) or is there some user error on my side?

Hey Reisn7CC,

There is an option within Project Settings > Rendering > Postprocessing > Custom Depth-Stencil Pass > Enabled with Stencil. I believe this option was added in 4.12 release.

What this option does is creates the Depth Buffer immediately and the Stencil is available for read/write. Let me know if you have further questions or need additional assistance.

Oh well that was it. Sorry didn't know about the new option.

No worries, we tend to add a lot of new features within each new major release. It can be easy to overlook or miss some of them as the notes can be very lengthy as well.
