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"

opacity mask does not work with subsurface profile material in 4.17.1

hi, I setup my character's body material in subsurface profile shading model and masked cloth from hand skin via a blacknwhite texture connected to opacity. it worked fine in 4.16 but Recently I upgraded my UE4 to 4.17.1-3586342+++UE4+Release-4.17 Binary version. now my mask does not work in subsurface profile mode and applies subsurface allover the body. I simplified my material and checked my mask in other shading models(translucent,...) and it worked fine so I'm sure there is no problem with my mask. that leads me to think there is a bug in subsurface profile shading model. I appreciate your attention.alt text alt text

Hello AMR,

I was unable to reproduce the issue you are experiencing. I have a couple of questions to help narrow down the issue you are experiencing.

  1. Can you reproduce this issue in a new project?

  2. If so could you provide a detailed list of steps, so that I can reproduce this issue on our end?
