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"

MatCap texture math / How to get accurate screenspace normals?

How do you do a simple matcap in Unreal Engine? I have the basic math done, and it works as intended - until the object is at the edge of the screen and you get an awful seam, after which the matcap texture mirrors! Every implementation I’ve come across and tried myself has the same problem. I think the problem has something to do with screenspace pixelnormals.

Just to make sure, this solution doesn't work after adjusting signs and a ConstantBiasScale?

It works when faced straight on, in the middle of the screen, as long as the object isn't too big. It "breaks" in every other scenario, and by that I mean it mirrors near the edge of the object. Since making this thread I have a settled on a botch where I scale the matcap to the object's bounds a little, and then project onto the surface. It looks a bit weird at screen edges with reasonable FOV but it's good enough so that you can't tell unless you're looking for it.
