    Hi Erich3D,

     

    Apologies for the mistaken thread lock - I misread the topic and assumed it was about Unreal. With regards to Mixer and decal scale, I don't believe there's a way to go any smaller than what you've currently set unless you attempt to manually type in a value such as 0.01. Could I see an image of what your Mixer viewport looks like with the decal you've applied?

    Thanks for opening it back up.  Sorry I had to make the post in the other thread, I just needed a place to explain it was Mixer scaling and not Unreal scaling (since I am doing something for VFX testing).  So unfortunately the scale is limited.  Typing in a number manually just reverts back to 0.1.  Doesnt seem to have a cap for enlarging though as you can scale as big as you want.  Sadly because its position is UV based, the only way you could get it to be the right size at 0.1 would be to scale up the UV's which wouldnt work.  So maybe its just a quick coding change that would allow a user to input any non-zero number.

    No worries, it's a total misunderstanding on my part. My head's still trying to function properly after coming back home to sea level from being in the mountains of Denver for the past week.

     

    What I'd recommend here is changing the scale of your model in the Settings/Setup tab. Whatever it's currently scaled to, try dropping it by a significant number. I'd actually recommend making it a scale of 1.0. Let me know if that helps with the decal scaling.

    This scale limit on Decals, always an issue for me . I've tried scaling the custom mesh and it doesn't effect the scale range of the decal. 90% of real world graffiti tags are small and done with a paint pen and not spray paint. No bigger than a sheet of paper. Even being able to manually enter a lower value would be acceptable. I can't think of any good reason not to have this feature. any advice would be appreciated.
