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"

Can i use OpenGL to render to a DynamicTexture?

I'm currently working on implementing a third-party map application/software into UE4 as a local plugin. This application uses OpenGL to handle all rendring and drawing, more specifically, it creates a OpenGL texture, then uses a buffer to render to the texture.

My question is therefore: In order to integrate this third-party software with UE4, can i keep the OpenGL rendring, and swop out the texture which is made by OpenGL with a DynamicTexture (UE4 / https://wiki.unrealengine.com/Dynamic_Textures)? If not, how should i approch implementing this software into UE4?

Thanks for giving me a few minutes of your time. Links and such are much appriciated.

Product Version: UE 4.19
