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"

How can I clear a Texture in a blueprint? (HMD UI log)

Hi,

I am trying to make a HUD-like UI in VR-Mode. For this, I added some StereoLayers in my Pawn, which display live-textures at the bottom right and left of my sight: Pawn with to Stereolayers attached to the camera One of it should work as a kind of Log. So I used a material which is half-opaque, and created a function to draw text to it: Function for printing Text on the Texture of StereoLayerLog As you can see from the API of the function, I want the text to vanish after a certain amount of time.

So, my question is: How can I clear a Texture (aka RenderTarget aka Canvas) in a blueprint?

Found a solution by drawing another (empty) TextureRenderTarget onto the first one: alt text
