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"

the dust looks like particles, while the flames seems like a mesh with a flame material.

Thanks, but for some strange reason, when I paste the .uasset into the content folder of my project it not appear on it. Probaly because our Unreal versions are not the same?? I don't now. But if it is a material, can you share some photo of the code?? Thanks

yep after thinking about it just using the normal uv's is probably easier to work with than the radially mapped material I sent you before anyway.

So the pics im sending you now is a basic panning flame material. Generally it works best with soft blurry textures. There are 2 speedY parameters you'll want them to be slightly different speeds.
