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"

Avi or MP4 with an alpha/opacity channel

Hello everyone! I cant find any definitive info on: Can you use a video file, inside the engine with transparency sections in it? What im trying to do is to have a couple of moving objects from a clip projected over a model. I have tried using decals, loaded with a flipbook and it works, but it is very limited.

Can I use a video file, where only a specific objects from the video are projected and the rest is alpha-ed out?

Thank you in advance!
