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"

Custom Render Depth Failing

I want my meshes to highlight when I mouse over them. It is a Point and Click game with Blueprinted mesh objects. The Post Process Volume is unbound and covering the entire room.

I'm attempting to adapt the obsolete YouTube tutorial by Tesla Dev.

To do this I have replaced the reference to M_Highlighted.uasset in the old Example Content to M_Orange_Shiny_Highlighted.uasset.

Also, as there is no longer a Misc tab in the details of Post Process Volume, I am assigning the material in Rendering Features/Post Process Materials/Array.

Nothing is happening. Can anyone help me get this going please?

Custom render depth works like a before in 4.18.1. I have it in project moved from 4.17 and other created in 4.18.

Reason why this is not visible is bad material. This orange shinny - I don't know, maybe this is material used in Content Examples from Epic, so you should check here how to use it, but maybe this material just not working.

This is image where I use custom render for debug (normally without glow effect, but both simple outline and glow like a here works well in 4.18)
