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 can you see the data type of parameters in materials?

I'm trying to debug a material in the material editor, and I often run in to the same two problems:

  • I can't tell whether what is being returned is a Scalar, a Vec2, Vec3 or something else.

  • I can't tell the value of what is being returned by a function. I can see the value as a colour, but no numerical value is shown.

Is there a way of telling what is returned by a function? Both datatype and value?
