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"

Peter Stefcek has provided an implementation method for the Unreal Engine VR painter (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6BE2c5TBvV4).

To implement the painter I performed the following;

  1. Followed the instructions on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6BE2c5TBvV4

  2. Where appropriate, copied and pasted the code from the official RenderTargets documentation (https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/Rendering/RenderTargets/BlueprintRenderTargets/HowTo/HeightFieldPainter/1/index.html)

  3. Applied the following additional modifications (not explicated in the audio)

  • Paint_BP brush - moveable

  • Paint_BP blueprint - static mesh component - moveable

  • Paint_BP blueprint - static mesh component - can character step up on - No

  • Paint_BP blueprint - static mesh component - overridden lightmap resolution 1024

  • Paint_BP blueprint - brush size - 0.1

  • Paint_BP blueprint - brush strength - 1.0

  • Paint_M: Blend mode - Additive

  • Paint_M: Shading model - Unlit

  • Paint_M: Allow negative emissive colour

  • PaintCharacter_BP/MotionController_BP: Trace from Actor - set interaction distance param to 1000.0

  • Project Settings - Support UV From Hit Results - restart editor

  1. For VR motional controller integration, I adapted the code from PaintCharacter_BP (First Person Character) for MotionalController_BP. See attached blueprint code UnrealEnginePainter-VRmotionControllerBlueprintCode.png:

  • MotionController_BP: Create the following boolean variables: triggerDownL/triggerDownR

  • MotionController_BP: wire events MotionController (L/R) Trigger to triggerDownL/triggerDownR

  • MotionController_BP: wire Event Tick to Trace from Actor depending on (Branch) status of Hand (left/Right) and triggerDownL/triggerDownR

  • MotionController_BP: set Trace from Actor input variables to Motion Controller - getWorldPosition/getWorldRotation
