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"

Is it right grayscale and alpha texture to stop using sRGB?


I made grayscale sRGB texture and use it as mask in material. But engine displays "warning: mask samples texture as 'grayscale'. SRGB should be disabled for 'mask_grayscale'."

So I found it in engine source and find below in MaterialInstanceEditor.cpp

 if( Expression && ((Expression->SamplerType == (EMaterialSamplerType)TC_Normalmap || Expression->SamplerType ==  (EMaterialSamplerType)TC_Masks) && Texture->SRGB))
     DrawShadowedString ...
 enum EMaterialSamplerType
     SAMPLERTYPE_Color UMETA(DisplayName="Color"),
     SAMPLERTYPE_Grayscale UMETA(DisplayName="Grayscale"),
     SAMPLERTYPE_Alpha UMETA(DisplayName="Alpha"),
     SAMPLERTYPE_Normal UMETA(DisplayName="Normal"),
     SAMPLERTYPE_Masks UMETA(DisplayName="Masks"),
 enum TextureCompressionSettings
     TC_Default UMETA(DisplayName="Default (DXT1/5, BC1/3 on DX11)"),
     TC_Normalmap UMETA(DisplayName="Normalmap (DXT5, BC5 on DX11)"),
     TC_Masks UMETA(DisplayName="Masks (no sRGB)"),
     TC_Grayscale UMETA(DisplayName="Grayscale (R8, RGB8 sRGB)"),

Is this code alright? I think it's correct converting to same type.
