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 can i get full control over mesh opacity created in Substance Painter?

Hello! Sorry for my English, i'm not englishspeaker, but i learn it now.

I have one-polygon mesh using as plastic glass over display. In substance painter i created opacity mask. You can see it in first screenshot. How can i apply it in my UE4 project? I use substance material generated in Substance Designer. Designer automatically set opacity mask to "opacity mask" socket in ue4 material (idk how it calls), but as i know, opacity mask works only with fully-white and fully-black colors igonring grayscale valuation. Ok, i tried to set blending mod into transfluence mod. But in this case i lost abilily to use roughness map and normal map. Moreover, the mesh stoped reflect light. It looks so bad. I tried to find best solution, changing all parameters in my material, but best i reached you can see in second screen. What the best way to do it? I really want to see my Substance Painter result in the UE4. I know, maybe this glass looks not so good, but i'll tweak it later. Now i want to get ability to make it better.

Screens: 1. How it looks in Painter; 2. How it looks in UE4; 3. Material in UE4

I think i got it. I selected "Surface TranfluenceVolume" in Lightning Mode and it works. Looks a way better, but not great. But i think it's because of lightning. alt text
