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"

Materials or Textures in UMG

My question is simple :

In cases where we want to apply different effects at runtime to an UMG widget, and those effects are doable both with straightforward BP functions and with Material operations, are Materials (with parameters) always the better idea?

I know that by using material parameters and using an invalidation box we already gain the benefit of caching certain bits of the UI. Is there any other performance related benefit? And is it always worth it?
