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"

RenderCustomDepth doesn't seem to work.

Hi community,

I am expecting the Render Custom Depth to create an outline affect on my static mesh, however it doesn't appear to happen. Below is a screenshot of my sword object and and a blueprint that enables/disables the render periodically, but nothing appears to be happening. Is there something I am doing wrong here? Is the behavior I am expecting incorrect?

Note: The object is inside a Post Render Volume!

Custom depth doesn’t do anything automatically. You need to make a post process material that gets custom depth as an input to affect the scene. Here’s a tutorial on making an outline effect:
