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"

Ribbon particles don't use Relative Time node

When using a Ribbon particle effect, the Particle Relative Time node in a material stops working. This node is helpful for creating external effects that cannot be done inside the particle editor itself. Is there another way to accomplish this?

This should be fixed in the Dev-Niagara stream.

You could use the dynamic node, if you dont need color you can abuse the RGBA channels from a particle color node, or in worst case control it trough blueprint.
