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 only way I can think off is to use customstencil, though it would be extremely annoying to have to turn on cellshading for each and every object that you want to receive cellshading on (check out these tutorials on custom stencil or do a Google search on custom stencil tutorials. It's not the easiest to use, but it allows you to determine which objects receive which material post processing).

I may have a different suggestion as well, but it may take a while for you to be able to use it. Take a look at this thread; Toon Shading At the moment it would require you to download the modified source and compile it from there, but if my information is correct, from 4.17 onwards, Unreal will allow plugins that contain shader code without having to modify the source, meaning this may actually become a plugin instead.

Hi thanks, Yeah I'm still super new to UE4 so I think I'll wait until 4.17 and then try this out but at least for this first smaller project I think I just won't use a toon stylized shading.
