Atmospheric Fog Color

The Atmospheric Fog Color Material Expression allows you to query the current color of the level's Atmospheric Fog, at any position in World Space. If no World Position is fed into it, then the world position of the pixel in question is used. This is useful when you need Materials to appear to fade into a distant fog color.

In the example below, The Base Color is being set using an Atmospheric Fog node, with the World Position receiving a simple network that queries the location that is always 50,000 units behind the object, relative to the position of the camera.

Welcome to the new Unreal Engine 4 Documentation site!

We're working on lots of new features including a feedback system so you can tell us how we are doing. It's not quite ready for use in the wild yet, so head over to the Documentation Feedback forum to tell us about this page or call out any issues you are encountering in the meantime.

We'll be sure to let you know when the new system is up and running.
