It is possible to make an Instance of an Instance. Every parameter that is changed on an instance will also change in every child, unless that parameter is overwritten. Changing a parameter is done by enabling the checkbox, if the check box is off, then the parameter will use the value of its parent material or material instance.

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.
