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"

is it possible to render a level into a material?

Do you want it for a minimap or so? If that is the case try this or this.

no its not for a minimap i want to have an animated screenshot of the level in the lobby

When you are in the lobby are the levels loaded?

you mean streaming levels? no

If the levels are not loaded then it kinda needs to be a baked animation, there might be better ways of doing this but you could record the level using a video capture software like fraps or nvidia shadow play, from that you can create a video that you can import into unreal engine and play it on the lobby.
