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"

You can use the DepthFade node in a material and hook it up to opacity.

I used DepthFade but its not exactly the result I'm trying to achieve. I'm trying to give it a blurry distortion as well but still give this a rubber like appearance.

Ahh, sry. There is a node for that. It's called spiral blur: https://wiki.unrealengine.com/How_To_Use_The_Spiral_Blur_Material_Node
