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"

Niagara distortion Problem

Why particles with additive or translucent material spawned in Niagara are not affected by distortion in GameViewport. There isn't problem in Niagara editor preview and BP viewport.alt text

As I know, translucency and particles (both Niagara and Cascade) don't really combine with refraction properly. There's a topic from 2014 here: https://forums.unrealengine.com/development-discussion/rendering/6645-refraction-translucent-surface-not-refracted-right-through-other-translucent-surface; maybe some things have changed over the years and there are some additional settings, but still by default in 4.21 particles and translucent materials don't get distorted by refractive materials.
I'll wait here to see if there's a way.

Hey, I think I found a way. In the particle material, in the Translucency section, turn off "Render After DOF". That might help, at least in my case it did, particles and translucent materials started being affected by refraction.

Yeah, right. Thank you.
