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"

Dispersing material

i want to make a material where if i get close to it the material will start too disperse getting away from me and when im not in the vicinity it starts too group up again as it was. Example walking in a hallway all covered in black moving goo and i have a torch and while walking through the hallway the goo close to me starts dispersing and when the torch is not in the vicinity that section gets back together. i dont want it predetermined i want it completely dinamic so if i get close to a wall to just because i want too it disperses there too. Please help! :3

Here is one possible solution:

This is how it looks in motion:

The material is set to be two sided. The more vertices the mesh has the better the displacement is going to look, but of course you can drop the world position offset branch entirely don't want to worry about it.
