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"

How to See characters through walls using post process?

Is there a way to have your post process material make your character show up through walls? NO Outline and no solid color...Just your character - with textures applied as is...showing up on basically the top layer of the render buffer?

1 answer: sort voted first

I don't think there's a way to use a post process to do this (your character is not rendered afterall so trying to get that information as a post process is going to be... probably complicated).

However, if you just want the character to be on top of everything (and I mean everything), you can set it up using a transparent material and check in disable depth test. Since its going to be technically translucent (event with opacity set to 1), I would only recomend doing that if its one continuous mesh though. Translucent meshes with any kind of interpenetration can get really weird sorting issues sometimes.
