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"

Render target and HDR maximum value

Hello! I'm trying to use Render target for my calculations But I think I run into limits by channels and that the most interesting for different channels is a different limit. How is this possible?) What is the maximum number that can be written in the RGB channels separately?


How do I write data to an alpha channel? Because the emmisive output is written only by the RGB

Product Version: UE 4.16

Render target format dictates the range of values, that you can store. If i'm not mistaken, HDR refers to R16G16B16A16 format should give you values up to 65k for each channel.

There was a tickbox in material settings, that allows you to output alpha with emissive I think.

Thanks for the answer. Unfortunately I did not find the tickbox - which would be responsible for the alpha channel. Alpha channel is 25% of the data Which I really lack for a full calculation. I would not like to have a additional Render target for these purposes
