Hey all,
I have an hda that has geo and a principled shader assigned in a hda which is being loaded into unreal. According to the documentation a material property of "metallic" should transfer over when HE makes the materials on the unreal side of things. All other parameters seem to come over, but metallic does not. I started with a principled shader and then tried a material builder to make my own with a metallic property exposed. The later triggered a metallic parameter to be made in the unreal shader, but it was set to 1.0, no matter what I set the default of the parameter to be or on the outside of the shader. Is there something special I need to do to get it to listen to the metallic parameter? Or is it broken?
