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"

Distance Field's 'Distance to Nearest Surface' Has a Maximum Distance?

I've encountered a weird issue: I'm using distance to nearest surface in my material to control colour, amongst other things, of water, and have found a weird issue wherein after dividing the node's result by the distance I wish to transition in - if that distance is over around 350cm, the result is always less than 1. This makes me think that distance to nearest surface has a maximum value of around 350cm. Is this true, and if it is - why is it so? It's infuriating.
