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"

Need to find out how a cyan colored texture is called

Hi there,

I need to create a special texture for my landscape material, but I don't know how it's called. I've been searching the web for informations but can't find any. It's very importend, so I really hope someone could help me out with it.

I've added some pictures to this post. What I need can be seen on iamge 1 (Taken from exaple project) [img]https://i.imgur.com/MsxwiGO.jpg[/img]

Of course there are tons of errors in my setup without the texture as you can see on the other image (The one form material editor)

If you could only tell me how the cyan colored texture is called, it would be greatö.

Thank you in advice

Why don't you create that texture yourself?

I'd like to, but I don't know how. That is exactly the problem. As far as I understrand there are values stored inside the RGB color channels, but I have no idea what values. I can create all kind of textures, just having issues figuring out what I need to do to get something similar like the cyan one on image "1.jpg".

Those are speculars (hence the "_s" at the end. specular isnt really used in ue4 and should be replaced with "Roughness maps" in ue4. Speculars and roughness maps are generally grayscale textures showing where light reflects more or less.

Alright now I understand. I just have to store spec, roughness and ambient occlusion in the color channels. Thanks :)
