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"

This is the material in the editor:

click save or apply on the material if you haven't yet. if the problem persists for debugging purposes, place a constant of 1 into the emissive and save, it should turn white and work as expected. if it does turn white then there is something going on in the material graph. you can probably narrow it down yourself just using the process of elimination, but if you want the community's help then you will need to post pics of the entire graph.
