You’re welcome. Hope you will find this tutorial useful :slight_smile:

Wow, thanks

this is great, I have needed something very similar :slight_smile: thanks!

I love it.

With some modification you think i can use it to snow accumulation effect? It would be awesome.

Snow behaves quite differently as it’s sticky and accumulates on surfaces facing wind. You could modify this material to achieve desired result quite easily.
Back in a day I made in UDK a snow material that accumulates on objects. At some point I might port it into UE4 :slight_smile:

Very Awesome! Keep making cool tutorials!
