Custom Depth Stencil is an extension of Custom Depth where you can use a stencil, or cutout, of your rendered object to then do visually interesting things like the example below that enables you to visualize occlude objects, draw object outlines, or only be visible from certain viewing angles.

Post Process Materials

There is a lot of potential with what you can do by having access to the stencil of an Actor in your scene. Using the following settings to enable and assign a stencil value. In this scene, Custom Depth is enabled on three objects and a Custom Depth Stencil Value is set for each, but without any post processing pass to visualize the content, this feature remains invisible. Once you've setup your Post Process Material you will be able to visualize how the Custom Depth Stencil looks, The occluded objects render with a randomly assigned color based on the Custom Depth Stencil Value used. This is a setup of the Material we used to visualize it: Click image for full size. VR and Post Process Material - Unreal Engine Forums.
