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"

That's a very generic question. Short answer is no. You can't easily deform drawings, as they are textures, for example.

The complete answer depends on what are you trying to do that you'd do on Flash/Scaleform.

No and i can tell you from fact that Slate (which powers UMG) is not as powerful as Flash which powers Scaleform, Flash was made primerly for animations (UI and scripting it's extra feature), Slate was made to be primerly UI system. But you can do some motion graphics in UMG (it's unique feature no UMG not part of Slate) not exactly sure how they are powerful as i never used them, they based on sequencer system, but still Flash is definitly more powerful and easier to work with in terms of animations.

From what i see in currently high class UE4 games Scaleform is still powerful enough to be relevant on market, for example Tekken 7 use Scaleform
