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"

Depth Fade On One Side of Mesh?

I am using depth fade for my ocean opacity which looks good from the surface, but under water it turns the sky black, which I suppose would be expected since it is a 2 sided material. Is there a way to apply depth fade to only the top side of the material, maybe based on normals? I tried multiplying it by vertexnormalws, but my ocean vanished.

You can use Two Sided sign material expression, to determine, if you are rendering front or back face, and adjust fade accordingly.
