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"

PNG imported with transparency issue

Hi,

I imported a .png which is a square border with transparent center. The texture that is seen in the content viewer thumbnail is a solid color. when I edit the texture it appears normal, square border, transparent center. If I try and make a material out of it, it is just the solid color of the border.

Why wont this work?

Product Version: UE 4.21

Hi, If you double click your texture you can change the Texture Group. For example UI then you should have the correct preview in the content viewer. Regarding the Material make sure the material is on masked or translucent.

Make sure your material is set to translucent or masked depending on the look you're after, and have your .png alpha channel hooked up accordingly. Let me know if you still have the same problem.

Thanks you CorsairOfLight and lkav. Masked and Unlit for the texture was what was needed. Orthographic is so strange.
