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"

Material do not apply as previewed


i created a fire material following this tutorial: link text. In the preview it looks good (for now) and it is animated.

alt text.

If I apply it on a Mesh (eG a standard cube) it will do nothing but looking a bit grey and it's NOT animated at all :/ :

alt text What did i miss or fail to do? Thanks in advance,

As I said, I followed the tutorial of Epic Games ("Fire Material"), it is exactly the same. There is nothing special, Textures, Masks, Panners for the Animation. Also Blend mode is Translucent and Shading Model Unlit as in the tutorial. As you can see, the preview is yellow - red (and itt does move) and if I apply the material to something it does not look like the materials preview.
