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"

How to make Translucent Materials skip Actors?


Today I'm asking for something that I'm not certain if it's possible with the current Setup.

So, for my objective system, the area that is affected has a sphere mesh with a translucent material which only has a depth fade functionality as it bound detector (See image 1). Now, that has the following Effect (image 2).

However, I want to see if I can find a way to skip the bus and cars from receiving these depth fade effects.

What can be done?

You can try similar method that I described here https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/575373/hiding-water-surface-inside-a-boat.html, but just mask out your buses with custom stencil.
