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"

Masked blend mode with early z pass should be considerably cheaper than translucent. Without Z pre-pass it is not much of a difference. It is not always the case though.

Thx for an answear but I don't realy know what early z pass or z prepass is. I googled it a bit but haven't been able to find a simple explanation for it. Would you mind giving me one?

Depth prepass, is a feature, that allows you cut down rendering costs. Before rendering the scene properly, it quickly renders it with a cheap shader, that outputs only depth. Later this depth information is used to skip expensive pixel shader computations on parts of the objects, that are hidden behind other objects.
