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"

Tessellation and displacement not working (Mac Metal)

ok - I just figured it out. You need to set the Metal shader model Metal 1.2 (or later) in the preferences. It works now

Thank You STE_user1. I didn't want to wait around for the obvious question,,... And where is that preference? So I searched and it is under Project Settings, Mac, Rendering you can if your Mac is newer set it to 10.12.0+

Nice!
