[UE4] Editor raytracing for roof detection

Hi guys, I made a blueprint which I found useful to execute some automatic procedures with objects that are placed under a roof. This can be useful during an open world production where you have tons of objects and you don't want to rely on manual control on each of them. In a production situation, … Continue reading [UE4] Editor raytracing for roof detection

‘Die Young’: UE4 Open World creation and optimization

Die Young production started with an interesting idea from an artistic point of view. It was a crazy challenge for us: we had to develop an open world set in a mediterranean island using an engine that was really lacking about advanced open world optimization techniques, and we were just 6, and only 4 with … Continue reading ‘Die Young’: UE4 Open World creation and optimization

[Maya – Python] Transfer Attributes sequentially with UI

Hi guys, today I would like to share with you a script that I found useful in many situations, for instance when you model a mesh and start placing all over the scene, remembering just in the end that you didn't have UVs on that. We can solve this problem using the Transfer Attribute tool, … Continue reading [Maya – Python] Transfer Attributes sequentially with UI

How to iterate atlas textures in UE4

Some days ago, I needed to find a way to iterate through an atlas of textures in a UE4 material: I wanted to apply this to some decals that I was spawning always together. So I setup this material which allows me to iterate through an atlas and pick a texture from it, and I … Continue reading How to iterate atlas textures in UE4

[UE4] Analyzing your game textures streaming using Python and a CSV file

Hi guys, today I would like to share with you a python script I wrote to order a CSV extracted by the ListStreamingTextures command in Unreal Engine 4. I used this in Die Young production to analyze my streaming textures log, since the UE4 command just listed textures without caring about any order rule like … Continue reading [UE4] Analyzing your game textures streaming using Python and a CSV file

Creating auroras in UE4

Some time ago I got a job request about the creation of a "northern lights procedural building tool" in Unreal Engine 4. I was asked to create a shader to simulate different kinds of northern lights and a system to create them with splines inside the editor. After some researching I found an interesting way … Continue reading Creating auroras in UE4
