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 to create Glass Material from model imported from Sketchup


UE4 Newbie here.

I'm a Sketchup user and tried the Sketchup datasmith with my current project. I imported the model and wanted to make a glass material for the windows. I'm not yet familiar with the material editor shown below. I tried tweaking it to create a glass material but it seems that I failed.

Do you have an idea how to create glass material with this editor?

Thank you in advance! :)
