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"

Transparent Reflections No Longer Working

I cannot get transparencies to display reflections as shown in the Blender tutorial here - https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/Rendering/Materials/HowTo/Transparency/index.html

In my version, when I try to do it like that, the material inputs for Metallic and Roughess will not show up when the Blend mode is set to translucent.

If a change has been made and there is some other way to do this, then the tutorial needs to be updated or removed.

The tutorial is out of date. You need to scroll down to "Lighting Mode" under "Translucency" and set it to "Surface Translucency Volume" or "Surface Forward Shading" to get those pins to show back up. They were removed because they don't do anything in the Volumetric lighting models.
