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"

[4.13] Forward render - Instanced (painted) foliage transparent?

Shadows look like they painted on top of the meshes instead of being occluded. Stationary sun and skylight, only on forward rendering, only with instanced foliage.

Hi Dunenkoff,

Forward Rendering in 4.13 is still very experimental and isn't fully functional yet. So there are bound to be some things that will have issues or will change significantly before being announced with 4.14 as a more rounded feature.

With that being said, you can select the foliage and enable the option for Use As Occluder in the Foliage Tool for the specific asset.

I hope this helps.
