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"

Invert lighting in material

I was wondering if there was a way to alter the light/shadow a material receives. I was looking through screenshots of "The Wolf among us" and noticed a very distinctive art feature was the fact that outlines in objects were black when the object was lit, and became brightly colored when hit by shadow.

alt text

Is there a way for materials to check how much light is hitting a certain pixel or something? Ideally I'd like to pass my material instances a black and white texture, and have the white parts of that texture be black in the light and colored/transparent in the dark.
