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"

Landscape doesn't properly assign material as target layers

Im trying to make a material for a landscape. When I try applying the material to the terrain: 1) The landscape remains black until I paint over it with a layer. 2) The target layers split the color maps from the normal maps rather than combining them. So instead of 3 layers, I get 6 layers - 3 colors and 3 normal maps.alt text alt text

Does anybody know what the problem is?? I just started using UE4 and I haven't been able to get a basic terrain set up yet.

Product Version: UE 4.13

Yes, that is normal, but you can use the fill brush instead of the paint brush to quickly fill the terrain

2) The target layers split the color maps from the normal maps rather than combining them

Your Diffuse and Normal layer in the Layer Blend node in your terrain material should have the same name, removce the "_N"

I hope this helps :)
