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"

Your going to want to start by figuring out your cell shading. The easiest way to handle this would be with a post process material. Here is a decent tutorial that goes over that and also links to a Epic Live Training stream that can help too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0UBNXneL1oo . The next step is harder, getting the actual shadows to have texture. Here, you can use a texture like this: alt text

This texture can be repeated in world space or based on camera position. Clamp / threshold this the smooth gradient based on the value of the shadow. This would create smaller circles where it is lighter, and larger circles where is is darker. Add or multiply those circles on top of shadow. It won't be easy but you should be able to achieve the visual effect you are looking for. Hope this starts you in the right direction.

There actually may be a good resource to look at on the Marketplace, https://www.unrealengine.com/marketplace/post-process-shader-pack-vol Breaking down how they are using post process material may help you along the way
