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"

Rendering Translucent Material Explaination

I encountered a problem with using translucent materials.

I would like to show a plane and a sphere within a coordinate system. The plane is cutting through the sphere, but though both are translucent, it looks like the sphere is before the plane, not intersecting it.

It seems like it is not a bug, but more a limitation of how the rendering in Unreal works. I found a YouTube Video, where a guy is explaining why the problem occours.

I'm wring my bachelor thesis about a project in Unreal, where I encountered that problem and I'd like to describe why that problem occours, but of cause I cannt use a YouTube video a source for my explanation. So where do I find a proper source for information on how Unreal does the rendering from translucent materials?

And other question, am I correct, that there is no way archiving my goal in Unreal? (I tried that dithering its not working how I like to.) I want to have multiple translucent objects intersecting each other. Here is my material setup: alt text

So can you give eather a way how I can archieve my goal, or a link to a description of how the rendering works and why its limited in the lanslucenticy.

Thanks for your help!
