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"

Normals creating a weird orange color

I am trying to apply this wood floor texture to an object, but the cracks in between the panels glow an orange color. The basecolor texture has dark lines, however. I'm pretty sure it is because of the normal because the normal map has abnormally dark lines in between the panels. I used Substance to make the material.

Here's where my normal map is being created: https://gyazo.com/731e541c699415020507e6620763d83c

I'm pretty sure it's because substance is outputting some parts of the normal as transparent. which ue4 does not like
