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"

Migrating material causes compile error

After having downloaded a free content pack from the web, I wanted to migrate one of the assets (a material) from the downloaded project to my own one. The material I wanted to migrate was actually a material instance, but I don't think that changes much. Thing is, I migrated it correctly (selected the content folder of the other project) and I got the successful migration message. However, when opening the other project and opening the material instance I can see that the textures are not connected (although they were too added). I'm talking about the diffuse and normal map, if that is of any help. Upon manually adding them, I can still see one last error:

{SM5} (NodeTextureSampleParameter2) Param2D> Requires Texture2D

Now I do not pretend I know much about materials (or unreal for that matter, as I'm just a beginner), that's why I'm using those assets in the first place. However As far as I know the migrate function should handle materials properly. I mean, migrating a material is even given as an example on the docs. If you have any clue what might be causing this, please answer. Thanks!
