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"

[request] avoid clearing material preview before updating changes

This is a request for a change with the UI- When making changes to a material, the preview window completely clears the shader, momentarily showing the default checker material, before displaying the updated results.

It would be helpful if the editor simply waited for the new shader results to finish compiling before showing any changes in the preview window, so that the artist could more clearly see the difference that the change has. It's harder to tell when there is a blue and white checker material (with different specular, etc) flashing in between the two things being compared.

Hi Patrick,

Thank you for your request. I have entered a report for skipping the default checkerboard texture. If there is anything else that is making the editor less user friendly, please let us know and I will be happy to help.

Thank you,

Alexander
