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"

How do I change a material instance?


I'm trying to set up a material where I can change each instance on the fly. Similar to the video about (3:30). I want to use a base material and then only change each instance on a mesh. Is this possible?

Yes it is possible to do that, I have attached a screenshot. Here the blueprint allows the user to change the static mesh and it assigns a new dynamic material instance whose properties can be changed per copy of the blueprint. alt text
