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"

3D UMG widget transparency

Trying to create a 3D UI widget but running into issues when it comes to transparency. If i have any transparency on an image which is included within the widget, it'll either come out full colour or it will come out invisible, there is no in between.

For instance, this asset will show up as solid dark green up until about halfway through the fade, then it will just become fully transparent.

alt text

Similar problems also happen if a use a fully solid colour and have it lower opacity. Anything over 50% opacity is just solid colour and anything under 50% is invisible.

In the blueprint that contains the widget, click on the widget component to expose its details, then check to make sure the Blend Mode is set to Transparent and not Masked.

Is it possible to set the blend mode in Blueprints? and not in the details panel.
