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 do you make new particle systems?

I honestly have barely scratched the surface of what is possible with particle systems in Unreal. Before I delve into it though, I felt it important to know something first. Am I limited to putting together PS using only what is in Unreal, or is it possible to create new graphic effects outside of Unreal in say Blender or another external program? Or is everything I need to make anything conceivable already in the engine?

Just want to know all my options before going ahead.

Also, do materials play a large part in changing how particles look? I had no idea until just 10 minutes ago that materials have anything to even do with particles.

You can create textures in any photo-editing/drawing software you can think of. you can create intricate materials, apply them on meshes and emit them from particle systems.
