Alan Willard is back in action with instructions on how to use the new 4.14 cable component and some of the new rendering features. A ton of new features have arrived with the release of 4.14, so Alan is going to dive right in and explain how to use them in-game. With his usual grab-bag of topics, Alan will have something to show off to every kind of developer, so tune in and check out the show!

So, "Fresnel" is pronounced "Fre-nell". Thank you. I have been calling it "Freshnel" all this time, hahaha!

In the blog, you're using the product name for the current Visual Studio and the version number for the newest one. The link for 15 goes to 2017RC. I had to lookup the Visual Studio Wikipedia article to figure it out. I guess it could be worse. At least you're not throwing the version number for cl.exe into the mix.

I'd be more excited about this if it used verlets/sticks instead of springs :/ this approach for ropes is so explosion-prone and way too rubbery IMO

This is a great quick access actor particularly suitable for introducing more dynamic gameplay into an action adventure game. I love Naughty Dog's addition of the hook/rope swinging feature in their newest Uncharted game, and I think that would be great to add more elements to level navigation
