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"

Using world aligned texture on a moving character

Hi,

I'm using world aligned texture to get a uniform smokey texture to render over a character, I want to ignore the characters UV's. I have tried to fix the texture swimming issue, by subtracting the absolute world position with object position. But, of course this works when I select the skeletal mesh in the editor and move it around, but I think because the character is animating off its root, it's not updating the skeletal mesh position within the animation, as in, it's not seeing the character move, just looking at the root of the object?

Is there a way to stop the texture swimming when a character mesh is using the world aligned texture and animating away from its root? Is there a way of finding the exact vertex position in the world, so I can subtract that from the world aligned texture node?

Any help would be great

Thanks Aaron
