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"

Spawn grass on Static mesh per material assignment

I work for an arch viz studio and we have been doing a lot more projects in Unreal recently. A recurring issue is the flexibility of the foliage tools when it comes to painting on static meshes. In particular, when we model out a surrounding hardscape we have meshes, typically within curbs, with our grass material assigned (see attached image). Since these are not landscapes, there is seemingly no simple way to either spawn or paint grass with the foliage tool only onto that material without it overlapping onto other meshes. If anyone has any ideas that could help it would be greatly appreciated.alt text
