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 get instance bounds/size?

Is it possible to get instanced mesh component instance bounds or size? The bound nodes seems to return bounds of whole component, not individual instance. I've also tried this custom expression:


... But without luck. I just need to get Z size of instance. I will be grateful for any help. Thanks!

Instance has no bounds. The best you can get is instance scale.

Thank you Deathrey, for the reply, I tried the scale options but it just shows 1 x 1 x 1, the scale that is it.

I went ahead and just manually put the size in and reference that when the actor is hit.

Works only left of VertexInterpolator material expression or through CustomUV.

Unfortunately not. Had to abandon my idea because of it, as far as I remember.

Ok, thank you for the reply. I will have to do it another way.
