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 center a texture using objectPositionWS

Hi, I have a mesh with bad UV mapping. The texture and the mesh have to be cocentric. I want this to be automatic so I don't have offset the texture manualy. alt text

My idea is to use the worldAlignedTexture node to bypass the UV problem. I want the center of my texture to be at the center of the bounds. I think Ihave to use the objectpositionWS node to get the position of the center of the bounds, but I don't know how to use it in the worldAlignedTexture node.alt text Has anyone done something similar?

Try something like this. It will work for XY projection. Also I think you can calculate Size by 1/ObjectRadius or one of options in ObjectBounds.

Offset parameter added to make additional adjustments for 'relative texture location'.

Thanks, it does center the texture perfectly when I offset it by 50,50,0,1. alt text

To addapt the size I tryed to use radius to scale it whith no success. Using OptionBounds just make UE4 chrash...

You want to change its size in game?

If not, just set size values manually.

If yes - you can try to multiply size parameter on ObjectScale, and set size values manually also.

I want the size of the texture to match the size of the object. That way you dont see the white corners. I also ran into another problem. I tried to rotate the object aroud the y axis and the texture didn't follow. Not sure it is possible to avoid that though.

You can adjust size manually, by measuring object size in editor.

With rotation this setup will not work.
