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 to make Dichroic Glass material?

Hi All, I'm pretty new here and I need some help. I started using UE4 for Archviz only. I have a lot of projects that include 'Dichroic Glass' material so I need to know how to make it in UE4.

The simple explanation of the material is that it has different transparency and reflection color. For example, one type of dichro glass I am using has Magenta as reflection color and Green as transparency color (Always opposite/contrast colors).

Few examples: https://i2.wp.com/www.empirehouse.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Dichroic-glass-installation-DSC_0495.jpg?fit=1024%2C1024&ssl=1

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for this but the method is too complicated. I usually have a lot of organic surfaces. Also, the models are created by another designer. I am only working on the renderings so I need to know how to do it using the material editor.

Thanks.

maybe something like this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lZ2o-NEdJhw you could use a Fresnel to Lerp between your Green and Magenta Colors, Green for direct angles and Magenta for more grazing angles with higher reflections.
