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] Is there a way to mask background blur widget?

Hey Guys! I'm trying to create an effect where the edges of the screen are blurred in a circular fashion something like this image.

I tried using retainer box to mask out the entire widget with a blur background in it. But I'm unable to setup a material successfully that can give me a desired result. So any ideas or solutions are much appreciated.

Just a gentle bump.

I found the way of making such effect, but I think it can be done more effective:

  • make a "sniper" camera and assign a dynamic render texture into it

  • make a material that accepts render texture (from camera), and apply all necessary masks

  • in umg: make a background blur, add image and assign that material

What is bad in this approach:

  • you will render a scene twice: from a main camera and from a sniper camera. In my tests, 4K main camera, and 1024x1024 sniper camera I have 10 FPS drop (from 70 to 60)

  • part of the blur (almost 50% of your screen) will be covered by the image from a sniper camera

What would be nice to have: masked blur, to eliminate sniper camera and unnecessary blur.
