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"

Shadow Catcher from Composure

I need that kind of Shadow Catcher from the Composure Plug-In for my project. Composure Example on Youtube

I'm trying to build a kind of runtime compositing Tool, so is it possible to transfer this feature from the Composure Plug-In to my project or is there any other way to get only the shadow casting on a plane to render (special Material)?

Product Version: UE 4.17

Nobody got an idea? Its not a new request, but I hoped that there are some news because of the Composure Plugin and the AR hype... In AR this kind of shadow is essential... The Unreal4AR-Plugin shows a solution, but the Source Code is not free... Unreal4AR Bike Demo

The Tutorial for Apple ARKit shows a way with "Cast Modulate Shadows", but this seems to be not dynamic... ARKit
