"Add" materials to Landscape material?

Hi folks,

I am new to UE4 (have worked with Unity prior) and especially UE4 level design as that is what I do, not interested in the development side of things. My question is if you’re able to “add” materials to a landscape material? I do know how to combine different textures and make a landscape material which you can paint with. The problem is that you lose all the details included in bought materials, like the individual stones sticking out from the path material and such. If not, can you just take the landscape material, copy and paste a bit inside of it, add new textures and get an ok result?


I don’t mess in landscapes too much, but IIRC you need a master landscape material and then you’d use landscape layer blends to add multiple materials. This should point you in the right direction -
