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"

Get rid of glow around text render

Complete newbie question. I am trying to get some text to display nicely on an in-game TV screen, but I can't get rid of the glow that surrounds the text. I want the text to have clean, sharp edges.

Here is what I am getting: alt text

The glow is not present in the blueprint: alt text

The TextRender properties: alt text

My font material: alt text

To import my font, I followed the instructions here: https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/282513/how-to-make-clean-big-text-renderers-with-custom-f.html That is, I change the "Texture Page Width" and "Use Distance Field Alpha". I also tried with and without anti-aliasing.
