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"

I modified one of my old projects to show a method of how do that. I erases the previous color by drawing a negative value into the render target. In the material of the brush it has to be set to allow negative emissive values. https://youtu.be/4N0bo4WqJu4

there's a bit of a delay sometimes as the colors switch, I think the value in the render target sometimes gets higher than 1 so it takes longer to erase.

Oh Thank you so much!

I tried, but the color of the part of -1 does not change immediately.

not sure, if the reason for the delay is that the number are outside the 0-1 range then maybe you could look into the water ripple materials because they somehow return the values to 0 after they are drawn. I think they use two render targets, but not sure exactly how it's done. I think there's an example in the content examples project.
