    Differ betwen "New Material" and "New Decal Material".

    Hello, I think this is silly question but I realy need to ask on this.
    There is a "New Material" command in the content browser when you click the right mouse button. Here you can create all the materials you want. But this is not the point of my question. The point is that there is another similar command "New Decal Material". I know what can you do with decals. You can create the material and then place the Decal Actor somewhere in your scene to create some text on the wall or some dirt on the floor for example. But I still don´t know why there is a command "New Decal Material" when you can create the decal with the "New Material" command.
    Is there some differ between theese two opportunities like the "New Decal Material" command is better for decals?

    As I wrote before maybe it´s a silly question but I will be very thankfull to anyone who could explain this to me.

    That should help.

    Basically, a normal material used as a decal material will appear strangely if you see it from certain angles.

      I thought there is no difference between these two materials, but there truly is, so this is good to know.
