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"

Media texture as normal map

Hey everyone,

for a project i will need to use an animated normalmap. There are quite a lot of frames involved so going the material flipbook route isn't exactly my first choise.

i went ahead and exported all of the animated normal map frames to an mp4 and threw it at unreal via the media player framework. it actually does work - but since i am not able to set the media texture to sampler type "normal", it is being displayed/handled incorrectly.

does anyone know a workaround for this? help is much appreciated!

Product Version: UE 4.14

The only workaround right now is to modify the Engine code. You can remove the Compression category in the hidecategories attribute of UMediaTexture. The "Compression Settings" drop-down box will then be visible in the texture editor. I fixed this for 4.16.
