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"

I want to load a material instance inside the Material Editor.

Is there a way?

You can't. But what you can do is use a Draw Material to Render Target node in blueprints. If you draw to a Render Target asset, you can reference it in your Texture Object node. If you use a Create Render Target node, and draw to that, replace the Texture Object with a Texture Object Parameter node in your master material. Then create a dynamic material instance of your master material, and use a Set Texture Parameter Value to reference the Render Target being drawn to.

It sounds like a lot of work, but it is possible. Let's consider. Thank you for answer.
