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"

Draw HUD to a CanvasRenderTarget2D via Blueprints

Hi all! Was excited about new Canvas Render Target feature in 4.2 and finally got it to try. But it seems, I cannot figure it out how to set up a render target, in which Canvas UI can be rendered, that I will use as a material texture later. Can someone help me with a little explanation on where I should get started? I'm trying to make it work via Blueprints only.

I've tried to make a new Blueprint with CanvasRenderTarget2D as a parent, but I don't know what should I do exactly with the UpdateResource function.

It is there but wasn't fully functional in BPs. Announced to be in 4.5 update: https://trello.com/c/eaWE0iGa/169-blueprint-hud-w-canvas-done-4-5

So, you'll just have to wait a bit unless you want to do it with code.

Btw, 4.5 will also have videos as texture feature. You may want to check that out too.
