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"

How can I use a particle system to control a scalar parameter value inside of a material without using a blueprint?

I have a particle material that will have 2 scalar parameter values for the effect. One effects the size of a ring shape in the material, the other performs a dissolve effect with a mask over time. I don't wanna have to use blueprints for the change of the second parameter, is there a default node for this? i tried using Parameter>Dynamic but it' won't let me name any of the parameters for some reason. How do I accomplish this? Thanks.

Hi, (Swiss fellow here :) ) When you select the dynamic parameter node you can change the names in the details panel.
