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"

It depends what you are trying to do, but the easiest way to make a circle from a square is to use a mask like this and lerp the texture. If you need it to be transparent (like UMG for example) then plug the mask into the opacity.

Hope this helps, Tom.

Could you provide a visual example?

Sure. It would look something like this.

You'll also want to change the material settings to masked if you want it transparent. If you don't, you can delete the "1-x" and plug a different texture into B of the Lerp. alt text
