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"

Vertex Painting Static Mesh Displacement


im trying to find a way to add a little bit of life and organic feel to my streets and i have found this system:


At around 0:45 there is a Vertex Displacement shown.

How can i use that? i have a Flat Plane Model with a few Tris in it and i cannot draw on it so it will rise or lower at that point?

Is this still possible or what is happening there?

If you are using vertexpaint you would need a good amount of vertex to paint on, so if you have a plane with only four vertext, your vertexpaint wouldn't look good... Can you show us your plane with all its vertex?

Thanks for the reply, yes i noticed i would need to subdivide a flat plane multiple times to get a good result. I guess in the Video it is achieved with Tesselation, which is the way i have solved it now.
