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"

You can modify DefaultTextMaterialOpaque material, that is by default assigned to text render actor, and change it to be translucent instead of masked (blend mode in material). Then you should multiply input of this opacity by your control value that goes from 0 to 1 (appearing) and 1 to 0 (disappearing). You can use material collection parameter for this purpose (to have a variable inside a material, which then you can change via sequencer).

How do I access the material collection parameter from the level sequence editor?

Nevermind! For future people doing this, it works fine with just a normal parameter in your materials editor as opposed to a Material Collection Parameter. That might ultimately work as well, but I couldn't figure it out.
