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"

Anyway to do a painting style particle effect or decal generation like tiltbrush?

Does anyone know what the best way to would be to create a paint brush style particle effect or dynamic material overlay generation for creating paint strokes in Unreal? I've tried coding some custom texture manipulation in C++ but its pretty taxing for the processor... Trying to do something similar to tilt brush where the paint will stick around for a while...

Ribbon particle effect with a paint like texture?

Though for control I might be inclined to keep adding to my own mesh strips - so each strip gets cached and the CPU doesn't really have to worry about it once built, only the GPU.

Perhaps: UProceduralMeshComponent

Nothing is ever as easy as you'd think, if it was you'd be looking for something harder still :)

Doesn't UProceduralMeshComponent::CreateMeshSection do what you want?
