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"

Is it possible to use the unlit viewmode or something similar and use post process materials?

I have an underwater wavy screen effect and a transition effect between levels that outlines all meshes before transitioning, but these don't work with the unlit viewmode. Is it possible to make these effects all work together?

Product Version: UE 4.19

Unlit viewmode is for debugging, you won't see any post process there. For the post process to work with unlit objects - you have to set object materials to unlit and use them in normal viewmode.

I would just make the materials unlit and adjust the emmisive, but this effect doesn't work on unlit materials. So if everything is an unlit material, then the effect just doesn't display at all. Is it possible to get the unlit look while still making these outlines possible? I'm using this effect for transitions. alt text
