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"

Clipping on DistanceToNearestSurface

Hi, I have problem using the Utility Expression DistanceToNearestSurface on material, namely some clipping happened when the camera is near the material, which it shouldn't happen. It's apparent on the left and right box.

What I've done is enabling the Generate Mesh DIstance Fields in the project setting, having a movable SkyLight, and using the same example material as the unreal docs.

Any Idea where I had done wrong? since the result I got is far-off from the docs example, and I cannot enlarge the 'read area'. Thanks!

I think this is some kind of "LOD" or "mips" of distance field.

Not sure what you can do in this case.Try to search in engine ini's for some relative properties.
