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"

The Refraction of a Watermaterial isn't z-flipped

I created a material for water and set on Refraction = 2.0 like in the water tutorial.

But the reflection on the water isn't z flipped. If you look at the water reflection on the pic the reflected small mountain should be on north and the reflected sky on the south part of the lake. Is this a bug or is there just a adjustment needed what I don't know?

Hi Eric,

I followed an unoffical water tutorial (12:30-13:00): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KPmRV1Z9ikY

I'm not an expert, but I think, the refraction isn't used to be in this way for water reflection, I looked at the water-material of the Vehicle example, this is a good water with water reflection without any use of the refraction slot. So refraction isn't equal reflection, so it is nothing work with refraction (?)
