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"

UMG Background Blur on Mobile?

Is it possible to get this effect to work on mobile? It works when I launch a PIE window, but when I build an APK and play it on my Nexus 6p, the background just goes black behind my text, instead of being blurred behind my text. I enabled Mobile HDR, and this didn't seem to make any difference. Any ideas on how to get it to work for mobile? I really dig it for my pause menu, and would like to stick with the blur if possible.

Product Version: UE 4.17

I can't find the post, but I know I've seen someone from Epic say that they had no intention of supporting Background Blur on mobile devices. I imagine this is due to hardware limitations on mobile and could change down the line (as smartphone hardware improves)

Thank you! I will come up with another plan for mobile menus.

Really is a stupid decision. I guess we can get by with using some blur texture from online or something but then we can't animate its blur level, just the render oppacity
